Warners Bay will be chasing maximum points from three games in seven days including a weekend-double header against Mid Coast.
The Panthers slipped to fifth and out of the top four after going down 5-2 to Newcastle Herald Women's Premier League leaders Newcastle Olympic at Darling Street Oval on Sunday.
It was the fourth loss in a row for last year's beaten grand finalists. Warners Bay's last win came in round 10 on June 6 when they beat Mid Coast 1-0.
Warners Bay coach Craig Atkins said there were plenty of positives to take out of last round's performance as they prepared to host New Lambton at John Street Oval on Sunday before meeting seventh-placed Mid Coast in Taree on July 31 and August 1.
"Alannah [Russell] scored two great goals and they were well-deserved," Atkins said. "I thought she was awesome. She worked so hard and she's getting better each week.
"We've been lacking scoring goals, so that was good to get two. Obviously, conceding five is not great ... but these next games could throw us right back up there, so they're really important and the girls are aware of that."
**Warners Bay midfielder Ryley Field made her 100thHerald WPL appearance when she came off the bench in the second half against Olympic on Sunday.
Olympic's Georgia Amess was also recognised for reaching her 100-game milestone a few weeks ago with an official presentation after the match.
**Hunter Valley Grammar School play Great Lakes College, Forster in round of 32 of Bill Turner Trophy at Ralph Maier Field on Thursday.
The winner will meet either Hunter Sports High or Central Coast Sports in the round of 16 of the girls 15-years-and-under school soccer knockout. The match between Hunter Sports High and Central Coast Sports is yet to be scheduled due to coronavirus lockdowns in the Greater Sydney region.
