LAUNCESTON will hope its home-ground advantage will help it to a fifth- straight TSL win over Burnie at its Windsor Park fortress today.
The Blues have had the wood over the Dockers, winning their past four meetings at the venue - Burnie has not been successful there since 2009, the inaugural season of the competition.
"I think our record over Burnie at Windsor Park over the past five years has been very good," coach Brennan Savage said.
"I'm fairly sure they don't like coming here and playing and we really welcome we've got a great record against a quality side on our home ground.
"We're looking forward to taking them on and obviously they will have a few changes as well as do we."
Savage said the Blues needed to rebound from a poor effort last week against North Hobart.
"We're pretty confident but obviously we let a game slip on the weekend and got completely outplayed for three quarters but the last quarter showed what we can do if our concentration levels are high," he said.
"We take that momentum into this week and basically that is the only positive we can grab out of the North Hobart game.
"I'm glad we finished the game off well [but I'm] disappointed we lost and we're looking forward to playing Burnie on Windsor Park."
He said the concentration lapse had been addressed and the Blues had shown they could maintain concentration with victories over top sides such as South Launceston, Burnie and Clarence.
"It's been highlighted during the week and some home truths spoken and I think you will see an improved effort this weekend."
Savage said the Blues' best form was good enough to beat anyone in the competition but acknowledged that on any given day the competition was even and any side could beat their opposition - evidenced by Launceston's loss to Devonport earlier in the season.
"It's a matter of keeping the concentration levels and the momentum going as much as possible when we're winning," he said.
The Blues have good competition for spots in the senior side with about six or seven colts looking to push for senior places.
"We'll keep rotating those players to keep them keen and fighting for those spots because sometimes it can come down to the 21st or 22nd player to make a difference in the game, and if we've got those guys in form that will hold us in good stead," Savage said.
City Park radio will broadcast the game from 1.55pm.
