Port Kembla coach Noel Spencer knows his men don’t need any extra motivation for Sunday’s showdown with Albion Park White Eagles at Wetherall Park.
With victory sealing their passage to the finals, the Zebras have everything to play for on the final day of the campaign.
“There is no more chances, there is no more relying on other results. We just have to go out and play to our potential,” Spencer said.
“If we play to our potential we will give ourselves a chance.
“We can’t rely on what is happening in the other game.”
Currently holding down fifth spot, Port are in a strong position to progress to the post-season.
If they win they will make the finals, but a draw would leave their fate in the hands of their top five rivals, Wollongong United and Tarrawanna.
Park can also progress to the finals if they beat Port and Tarrawanna defeat United in Sunday’s other blockbuster.
It would be a miraculous recovery from last year’s grand final winners, who have struggled to find the same form as 2016.
But the White Eagles have won both of their past two matches to keep their finals dream alive and Spencer is adamant his rivals at far from a spent force.
“They combine well in that top third so we have to be really focused on our roles individually and collectively,” he said.
“We have to be really on our toes and have to be organised.
“Hopefully we can do that and make the finals in all three grades.”
