Second-ranked Warrnambool Rangers won't be taking fourth-placed Bacchus Marsh lightly, according to coach Cam Pyke.
The sides will meet for the first time this season on Sunday at Bacchus Marsh.
"We won't be taking anything for granted," Pyke said.
"We'll be making sure we're playing to our potential and come away with the win."
Rangers defeated Ballarat North United 2-0 at Jones Oval on Saturday in Ballarat and District Soccer Association round 10.
Rangers' strikers Clinton Demartin and Ryan Bail made an emphatic return to the pitch after being unavailable last weekend.
Demartin shook the back of the net just before half-time after receiving a pass from Declan Mitchell.
Bail put the game beyond doubt in the 83rd minute when the Rangers were on the counter attack.
Pyke said it was great to see them get on the scoresheet.
"It was really positive to have Ryan and Clinton back, they work really well in tandem and they put the opposition under a lot of pressure on their backline," he said.
Pyke added the whole attacking line-up applied strong pressure and praised the performances of fellow forwards, Isaac Welsh and George Paspaliaris.
The coach also the liked the work of the defensive line which stood up against a physical United outfit.
Rangers were almost at full-strength on Saturday with only Connor Bellman unavailable.
Pyke is expecting him to be right for Sunday's clash.
Meanwhile, Warrnambool Wolves secured a 3-1 victory against league new-comer Port Fairy Plovers on Sunday at Harris Street Reserve in the South West Victorian Football Association.
