Pressure is on: Eagles and Demons battle for finals chance

MILDURA will book themselves a semi-final berth if they can manufacture a win over Robinvale in the SFNL match of the round at City Oval this afternoon.

The battle for fourth spot has been a long running saga in season 2012 and a victory for the Dees will not only put an end to the drama, but also allow them to rest key players and those with niggling injuries the following week, allowing a full tilt attempt at winning a final against South Mildura.

Robinvale, however, have plenty of ink left in the well and will be planning on writing another chapter of their own.

A win today and next week against the out of form Merbein will have the Eagles cemented into finals action, providing Wentworth does what it is expected to do by beating Mildura in the final round.

Concentrating on today’s action though and where does one look to find a winner between these two teams?

Mildura again proved hard to beat in a tight contest last week and have now won six of their last nine games. Four of those wins have been by less than a goal with all of those four coming from a goal after, or close to, the final siren.
