As Nirranda coach Brayden Harkness says, you can only control the controllables.
And the Blues, like all other Warrnambool and District league sides, will have to make best of what's left of the often interrupted 2021 regular season.
The state's fifth coronavirus lockdown meant no footy the past fortnight and Nirranda missed out on playing top-five teams, South Rovers (fifth) and Kolora-Noorat (second).
The Power match-up would have been an especially good hit-out as those teams could likely play-off in the grand final.
Timboon Demons (ninth), Old Collegians (seventh) and Dennington (10th) are the Blues' final three opponents.
The seventh-ranked Warriors can still make finals as they are only one game behind South Rovers.
Harkness is confident his side can remain sharp for finals.
"We're really lucky we've got a really committed group and we're all trying to achieve that common goal of winning finals and a premiership," he said.
"Everyone's really driven and did their own work over the break.
"We're hoping to just pick up where we left off."
Harkness said it was a matter of the Blues keeping their standards high and playing the brand they wanted to play.
"That's our test," he said.
The Power's run home features South Rovers, third-ranked Panmure and Timboon Demons.
Coach Ben Walsh is likewise hoping his side gets straight back to business.
"We'll be just trying to build that momentum and recapture that as quickly as possible," he said.
"I'm sure they'll be cobwebs to blow out.
"We were pleased with last game we played and we want to get back to that as quick as possible."
