A LEETON team looking to tick off one of its most immediate goals will travel to Griffith this weekend to tackle the Black and Whites.
At the start of the season, the Greens first grade side set themselves a goal of winning three of their first matches.
Already, they have secured two-from-two, and will be looking to back that form up against the Panthers this weekend to register their third straight victory.
In their favour will be the return of several players from injury.
Coach Warren Weir is also hopeful he will be on deck come Sunday afternoon after inuring his hamstring last weekend.
"I got through training alright, so I'll be giving myself every chance," he said.
"We'll have a session on Friday night, so I'll see how I pull up after that.
"The biggest injury worry we have at the moment is Elwyn Ravu at the moment, he's got a crook shoulder."
The Greens depth is one to be admired this year and it's working in Weir's favour.
He said the mood around the club two weeks into the official Group 20 season was positive.
"We've been getting really good numbers at training," Weir said.
"I think blokes are worried if they aren't performing and they aren't turning up to training they will lose their spot because of the depth we have this year.
"It helps that reserve grade have also had two really good wins as well.
"There's certainly some guys from that team who will be wanting to knock on the door for (first grade) selection."
Leeton are currently sitting on top of the first grade ladder, but are fully aware it is only early days yet.
Getting that third win this weekend will be crucial heading into the Easter break.
"It's definitely the aim ... we set ourselves the goal, so if we can knock it over early and keep building from there, that's great," he said.
"We've got Black and Whites this weekend first though.
"They are always a good side. They will be knocking on the door around finals time.
"We've got to turn up ready to play against these guys.
"If we do play finals this year, there's a fair chance we'll be facing this side."
