YANCO-WAMOON will have to muster everything it has to defeat Darlington Point-Coleambally in this weekend's minor semi-final.
The Hawks have several of their key players on the injured list after a bruising encounter in their first final with West Wyalong last week.
Coach Troy Preston remains sidelined and isn't sure if he should risk coming back this weekend or wait and see if the side continues on in the finals series.
Shannon Bradbrook injured his shoulder last weekend and, while he's telling his coach he wants to play, Preston said there was still a cloud hanging over the play-maker.
Several others have niggling ailments and may not take to the field.
"It is frustrating," Preston said.
"We've had a pretty good season so far and then for this to happen at this time of the season isn't great.
"It is all part of it. We would definitely love to be at full strength and it's just not the case."
While Yanco-Wamoon may not be at their best this weekend, they are still eyeing off a victory over Darlington Point-Colembally on Saturday.
The Roosters were able to advance in the first grade finals after defeating the Leeton Greens in the elimination round last weekend.
In their two encounters this season, Yanco-Wamoon won the first match 28-22, but it was the Roosters who picked up victory the second time around, 28-18.
"They are definitely a good side," Preston said. "We just need to go in there and play to our best ability. Don't drop the ball. Make the best of our opportunities.
"We need the ball in our hands to win. We obviously want to win. There's things from last weekend we are working on so hopefully it comes together."
