Weston are hopeful captain Nathan Morris will be back in the top grade soon after he returned off the bench in under 20s on the weekend.
Morris, Weston's most experienced player, has not featured since round three because of a groin injury.
Despite missing the key man, Weston have been the surprise packets of the league, rising from ninth place last year, and wooden spoons in the previous two, to sit one point off top spot at the halfway mark.
Assistant coach Craig Stoker, though, said the Bears had their feet on the ground.
"The good thing about it is that the players aren't really talking about it," Stoker said of their goals rising.
"They are just going about their business."
Stoker said Morris had about 20 minutes action on Sunday and he would get more time this Sunday when the Bears travel to Hamilton.
** Edgeworth coach Damian Zane is not a fan of spare weekends and byes but they could help in getting defender Sam Maxwell back well before the end of the season.
Maxwell is likely to be out for seven weeks with an ankle fracture. With a bye, the FFA Cup qualifying weekend and a spare weekend to come, Zane was hoping Maxwell would "be back with five or six games before semis".
Goalkeeper Nate Cavaliere (finger) could return this Sunday against Magic.
** Broadmeadow have signed young Blues striker Hayden Seaton as coach Ruben Zadkovich faces a shortage up front this weekend.
Kale Bradbery is suspended on cards, while Kristian Brymora is still out and James Virgili remains in doubt with hamstring injuries. Jacob Dowse (knee) is already gone for the year.
Zadkovich said Virgili failed a fitness test on the weekend and he would "probably err on the side of caution" and not play him against Edgeworth, who they face again the following Saturday in the FFA Cup.
As for Seaton, he said: "He's a good young talent but one that will need coaching and work, but he's a good young kid with a great attitude".
