Welcome to the live football and netball blog of round 10 of the Warrnambool and District league.
The sixth-placed Lions and seventh-placed Bulldogs both have injury concerns but are coming off strong wins against Russells Creek and Dennington.
Separated by percentage alone, the winner will lay claim to a one-game buffer and edge one step closer to knocking Allansford, set to play Kolora-Noorat, out of the WDFNL's top five.
In the netball, Dennington has the chance to jump into the top two it hosts an in-form Old Collegians.
The game pits the league's two highest scoring sides against each other in what promises to be an enthralling shootout.
But another key fixture is fifth-placed South Rovers' game against seventh-placed Panmure, which could see the Bulldogs press their final credentials in the event of an upset win.
