WYNYARD coach Tom Robinson is confident his players are good enough to bring down Latrobe for the first time this year in their NTFL encounter this weekend.
The Demons remain undefeated after 17 games but Robinson said the premiership favourites were beatable.
The Cats are near full strength and will hold the home ground advantage.
"They are a very good outfit and we only lost by a point last time we played," Robinson said.
"We will play them in the second semi-final and that won't change, so this game is good preparation.
"Our attitude has always been pretty good when we play them ... (and) if we play the best footy we can, we are capable of beating them - of that I'm certain."
Wynyard forward Cameron Betts will return to the side after being a late withdrawal last week.
Fifth-placed East Devonport will host Ulverstone, who are still hopeful of snatching third spot from Smithton.
Ulverstone's match against Wynyard was cut short last week after Bomber Nick Dyson suffered what was thought to be a serious neck injury, however, coach Justin Hays said Dyson would recover and was still a slim chance to play again this year.
"We have played them (East Devonport) three times this year and they have been pretty close games and they beat us once.
"There's a couple of taller guys that didn't play last week for different reasons but Ryan Wing is coming back from injury and has played a couple of games in the reserves, so he will get looked at."
The last time Penguin and Smithton played each other the match finished in a draw, but Saints' coach Jarrod Walting said his side wants the full four points this time around.
He said he was looking to lock in third spot on the ladder to secure a home final against Ulverstone.
"It is going to be a tough ask up there against Penguin who are in some pretty good form so it should be a good game," Walting said.
Guy Kearnes will miss due to unavailability.
