ORANGE City Lions co-coach Mick Gray believes the two cornerstones of his side's back-to-back premierships - defence and discipline - will determine Saturday's local derby.

The lions will venture into enemy territory when they run on to Endeavour Oval to face arch-rivals Orange Emus.

Both outfits currently reside in the Blowes Clothing Cup's top three, with the outcome of Saturday's game sure to have a sizable impact on their standings at season's end.
