The Illawarra Stingrays have the chance to snatch top spot and all but seal a finals berth when they host ladder leaders Macarthur Rams on Sunday.

Illawarra come into the weekend just three points off the Rams, but hold a superior goal difference which would allow them to climb to the summit of the competition if they take three points at JJ Kelly Park.

It’s a feat Stingrays coach Brett Wallin says his side are confident of achieving. 

“I know the girls are up for it,” he said. “We have the chance to take top spot if we do take the points, so there is a lot to play for.

“I think the advantage lies with us because it is our home ground and thought we were lucky not to get the points the first time after a couple of controversial goals.

“This time, I am going in expecting nothing but a win so are the the girls.”

Wallin expects both teams will be close to full strength on the afternoon, with only each clubs long-term absentees unavailable.
