Port Macquarie Magpies will be looking for a win to pave the way to finals this weekend on May 18.
The AFL North Coast womens team are scheduled to face off against the Northern Beaches/Grafton at Ellem Oval from 11.50am on Saturday.
The Blue Tigers are in their first season and did not manage to score against an 88 point (13.10) crusade by the Magpies earlier this year on April 27.
Magpies coach Mel Hunt said the team was going well and expecting a good game with an improved Tigers side on Saturday.
"The girls have been working hard this week, I think it will be a good game," she said.
"We've been working on our ball handling skills off the play because the Tigers have previously kicked low.
"Although travelling for any team is always a challenge.
"They'll have improved and we'll have to wait and see what happens.
The Magpies are fresh from a win against Sawtell Toormina Saints, 21 (2.9) to 14 (2.2).
Ms Hunt said the Magpies were happy in shared-second place on the ladder behind Coffs Harbour Breakers but would be looking to jump ahead on points over the weekend.
"We're in second at the moment and I'm happy with that," she said.
"The footy ladder has been ever-changing this season.
"Sawtell is our biggest rivals, they beat us in the grand final last year so beating them last week was a big confidence boost."
In the other womens game, Sawtell Saints will play Coffs Harbour Breakers from 11.50am at Richard Park, the match would see the top of the ladder Breakers bumped down two places if they lose and Magpies win.
In the AFL North Coast Seniors, Grafton Tigers will play Port Macquarie Magpies at 2.50pm, while the reserve Magpies will play Northern Beaches Blues at 1.20pm and the under 17s will take the field at 10am on Saturday, May 18.
