The Rail may be preparing to take on winless Kookas on Saturday, but captain Brett Gilly has vowed there will be no complacency from his side.
Gilly was disappointed with his team's performance in last week's loss to Oak Flats and said he's expecting a much-improved showing this weekend.
"Oak Flats batted us out of the game last week," Gilly said. "We're looking forward to this week and hopefully bouncing back with a win against Kookas. They've been struggling so we expect them to put up a big fight.
"Our fielding was poor last week, we weren't able to create pressure on the batsmen and that made it harder for the bowlers.
"It's the simple one-percenters that we're not doing right. We need to fix them moving forward or we're not going to be the premiership threat that we want to be."
Saturday will also see Lake Illawarra face Oak Flats in a grand final rematch, while Shellharbour will play host to Albion Park.
