East Armidale are a win away from booking a spot in the Northern Inland Premier League major semi-final.
They take on North Companions in the final round with a win ensuring them of finishing in second.
Easts spent round 20 on the sidelines with the bye and they are nearly back to a full-strength squad.
Coach Mark Gwynne said while North Companions sit second from the bottom of the table, he doesn’t expect them to be easybeats.
“They have been playing well. I still say with the ball they are the best team we have played,” he said.
“They play the best style of football. They are going to be hard and we have just got to do everything right and move them around the park.
“I am sure if we play the footy like we have played in patches then we can beat any team.”
