They haven't qualified for the Bathurst Orange Inter District finals series yet, but Cavaliers' batsman Bailey Ferguson knows if his men are to scrape into the top four, they can make some waves in the postseason.
Matt Corben's will will square off against Orange City at Bloomfield Oval in day one of round 14 which shapes as the last hitout before the playoffs.
It's hard to pinpoint exactly where Cavaliers have struggled but a lot of the responsibility lies within the batting order as their key men have failed to get going on multiple occasions.
Having said that, Cavs are still amid a good year and have the opportunity to book themselves a finals berth in round 14, a feat Bailey Ferguson thinks is achievable.
"I think if we can build partnerships on the weekend, we'll be OK," Ferguson said.
"We're playing a bit of live by the sword, die by the sword cricket right now.
"If we can pull everything together come this finals series, I fancy our chances."
Cavaliers don't necessarily need to win to slide into the finals but if they lose, will be sweating on the Bathurst-based clash between City and Rugby Union.
If Cavs fall to Orange City - and Redbacks knock off Rugby Union - they would fall out of the top four.
The task at-hand is a tough one for the fourth-placed side and Ferguson knows City's strengths all too well.
"They have a few really good bowlers," he said.
"Ed Morrish has been solid for a long time, Blake Weymouth is always a threat at the top of the order, and Harry McGregor has been fairly quick this year.
"Hopefully we've saved our best form for the right time of the year."
CYMS will aim to close out their season with a clash against Centennials Bulls at Bathurst Sportsground.
The home side is fresh off an impressive win over the Cavaliers, that result responsible for the dramas taking place at the fourth and fifth position.
As for the green and golds, they ride a two-game winning streak into this one, having beaten Orange City and Kinross is back-to-back games.
Centrals face arguably the toughest task in Central West cricket as they square off with St Pat's Old boys who will no doubt be looking to re-claim top spot on the ladder after Orange City overtook them with an outright win over City Colts in round 13.
Lastly, Kinross plays the aforementioned City Colts at the school grounds, the students aiming to build on a narrow loss to CYMS last time out.
