Greater Northern Raiders will keep faith their bowlers can dismiss Kingborough to conjure up a result in their rain-affected outing and rise from the foot of the ladder.
Only 20 overs were bowled last Saturday in the Cricket Tasmania Premier League clash at the NTCA Ground.
Persistent rain brought an early afternoon close to the day and forecasted showers again for play could hinder Raiders' plans for a first win of the season in five matches.
But Raiders coach Andrew Gower does not want to think of distractions ahead of the side walking onto the field.
"We have 112 overs to play this Saturday," he said.
"We'll go in with a positive mindset, to still try and take wickets early, and hopefully we can set up a game."
Kingborough resumes at 2-63 on the back of an unbroken 41-run stand following a belligerent 33 not out from captain Trent Keep.
Mathematical calculations would suggest the Raiders need to bowl Kingborough out inside the first 46 overs on Saturday to ensure their batsman have the same number of overs to run down the target as is the condition of regular two-day fixtures.
Play begins an hour earlier to make up for lost time.
Gower feels the bowlers only have to replicate their promising start with the ball to stay on top of things.
"I thought we bowled quite well early doors," he said.
"The boys executed their plans quite nicely after we did win the toss and bowl.
"There was only one or two overs that went for a few in the first part of play."
Three trips to Hobart that also include early morning departures in four matches adds further to frustrations.
Gower said the players did not enjoy sitting around for hours watching the rain fall.
"We are all a bit frustrated because we all want to play cricket as that is what we are here to do," he said.
"We got off to a really good start and wanted to continue that momentum we thought we had at that stage of the game.
"We're all disappointed not to be playing, but we realise you can't control the weather.
"We're still in a pretty good headspace."
