For Greerton Marist, the aim is clear ahead of this weekend's final round of match play in the Baywide premier men's competition.

Secure a win when they host Rangataua tomorrow, and secure a spot in the semifinals.

The formula is the same for Te Puke (19 points) and Greerton Marist (18), who are sitting third and fourth respectively on the Farmlands Co-operative Baywide Men's Premier competition. If they fail to win however, they open themselves up to Mount Maunganui taking one of those spots.

Te Puna and Tauranga Sports have confirmed themselves a home semifinal spot with both teams sharing first with the two sides having 26 points each - but one team will come out on top after this weekend as the two sides face off.

Greerton Marist coach Kane Parker says his team is mentally ready but they are not taking anything for granted for the upcoming match against Rangataua, sitting at the bottom of the table.

"Rangataua is a very proud club and I've never been part of any team or coached a side against Rangataua where it's easy. It's going to be a tough day at the office. It means a lot to [Rangataua] and it means a lot to us.

"To me, I'm looking at it, that we are playing a very tough side and that's how we've got to plan."

Parker plans to play a full-strength line-up for Saturday's game being played on their home ground.

"We can't rest anyone. It would be great to be able to do that and save something for the semifinals, but it is what it is."
