BURNIE big man Jason Laycock said his team's confidence was high after a good win over Clarence last week and the Dockers were looking forward to taking on the Blues in today's State League preliminary final.
"Hopefully we can get a good start this time around and that can be the difference," Laycock said.
"We were five goals down at half-time last time and only lost by a kick so obviously the start didn't help us.
"We kicked against a probably six- or seven-goal wind last week and were pretty much even at quarter-time so it was a massive first quarter that set the game up for us."
Laycock, 28, said the Dockers would be at full strength after struggling to get their best 22 on the park for most of the season.
"To have everyone up for selection at this game is massive," he said.
"Last time we played them we didn't have Nick McKenna or Andy Lee, a couple of our key backmen, and Big Sav and Sonny Whiting took advantage of that last time so hopefully those boys can make that difference for us this time around."
Laycock said his form had been pretty solid in the past two weeks after being "up and down" during the season.
"Hopefully I can continue that and I was pretty happy with the way I went even in that loss to Lonnie," he said.
"Kanga [Nathan O'Donoghue] normally plays a bit wide of me and I normally get someone like a Gene Savage running with me so Nathan can get loose behind the ball where he can take those telling marks.
"He's a key player for them as I am for Burnie and we've had some good battles - we're pretty even on who has won and lost so far, so that will be a massive match-up."
Laycock said Burnie's focus was on this game and not about making a grand final.
