Warners Bay's win over Merewether turned heads last weekend but coach Craig Atkins says it will mean nothing if the Panthers do not back it up with a strong performance against Adamstown on Sunday.
The round is the last of the Herald Women's Premier League season proper and the last chance for the top-four teams to finetune finals form.
The four finalists are decided - the only thing that could change, depending on results, is positions.
Warners Bay are fourth with 24 points and will play in the elimination minor semi-final. They have sustained the most losses of the top-four sides but last round's 4-3 win over third-placed Merewether (27) showed they were finding form at the right time.
It was the Panthers' first win over any of the top-three teams this season.
"I hope people saw the result last week and that might have raised a few eyebrows," Atkins said.
"To be honest, I thought 4-3 was pretty generous to them but that's football. If we can put together a dominant performance this weekend, hopefully people will be thinking Warners Bay are starting to hit their straps. It's all down to us."
Warners Bay face sixth-placed Adamstown (16) at Adamstown Oval. While Rosebud cannot make finals, they will be keen to finish the season on a positive note.
"They had a big win last week against Mid Coast and it's going to be tough," Atkins said. "They're a young side that is well-drilled and it's going to be a tough challenge. But we want to win the game and we've got to continue that really solid performance from last week and build on that as we head into the semis.
"We should've scored a lot more goals last week and, unfortunately, our mistakes led to all of their goals. So it's just being a little bit more intense and making sure that we don't let those errors creep in this weekend or the following one especially."
Broadmeadow captain and centre-back Kalista Hunter said second-placed Magic (28) were looking to bounce back with a strong performance when they travel to Taree on Sunday to play Mid Coast (19) after a 4-0 loss to leaders Newcastle Olympic (31).
Olympic, who host New Lambton (7) at Darling Street Oval on Sunday, all but secured the premiership with the win. If the top four stay the same after this weekend, Magic and Olympic will meet again in the major semi-final.
"We were all really disappointed but we've moved on now and are just focused on this weekend's game and also preparing for finals," Hunter said.
"It was a frustrating game because I don't think there's much difference between us and Olympic, it's just literally who performs better on the day. It's super important for us to have a positive result this weekend. If will be good if we can put some goals away and get some confidence with that, but our main focus will be winning and just preparing for finals.
"In saying that, you can't take anyone lightly. Mid Coast obviously beat Merewether and if you don't perform on the day you can be beaten by anyone. We've just got to take our chances."
Merewether host Thornton (0) at Arthur Edden Oval on Sunday. United will be without defender Jamee Ellis through unavailability and goalkeeper Alison Logue remains in doubt with a knee injury.
Merewether coach Scott Ellis plans to use the match to "tinker with the formation".
"The reality is we're probably going to revert to something that they're familiar with and suits the players that we have," Ellis said. "It's really about being pragmatic and setting up to get results in the three games after this one."
All games are at 3pm.
