In one of several intriguing games for the round, Perth host Trevallyn as both look to get back on track after shock losses.
Demons coach Mat Devlin said dropped catches cost his side last week and has identified two opposition players who are big wickets.
"Obviously it's key to try and restrict James Whiteley's runs as much as possible as well as Drew Clark," he said.
"Drew is obviously one of the more dangerous batters in the comp but it just comes down to us applying ourselves for the full 80 overs."
Luckily for Devlin, Clark is one of five changes Trevallyn have made this week, with coach James Whiteley describing last week's performance as "horrific".
Everything needs to improve and to be honest, it wouldn't take much for everything to improve across the board.Trevallyn coach James Whiteley on his side's last-week performance
"We are looking for a bit more of a team performance [this week]."
Evandale Panthers defeated a 2020-21 grand finalist last week and will be faced with the other one this week against Hadspen.
Captain-coach Jonty Manktelow takes an unchanged side into the contest, coming off what he described as their "best all-round performance of the year".
"Our middle order was able to stand up and contribute and post a really competitive score and we just kept chipping away and taking wickets at the right time when needed," he said.
"It was a big win for us."
Hadspen continued an unbeaten start to their premiership defence but it's still business as usual for coach Liam Reynolds.
"It was good to get the win but from here on in, we've still got to look at ways to improve," he said.
"Obviously early wins are good but week by week as long as we are building on something bigger for the end of the season, that's the ultimate goal."
Another pair of sides coming off a win, Legana and George Town, face off in what could be a key match for their seasons.
The Durhams hit their straps last week with the ball, led by veteran quick Matthew Wells and they welcome back some more club stalwarts on Saturday in Sam Howe and Mark Payne.
"Batting the 40 overs again is going to be the key, I know they talk about it a lot as well, having a good structure at the top, but I'm confident of getting another win this week, at home as well," captain Dylan Sharman said.
Opposing coach Jack Hill identified Sharman as a key pillar for Legana, with the Saints, who gain Dylan Baker this week, ready for whatever the home side throws at them.
"They are an unpredictable side at times, I think they've been skittled for 50 and bowled someone out for 50, so we will definitely treat their top order as dangerous," he said.
"We know Dylan Sharman is a big key to their innings, like most sides they have a good batter at the top who can take the game away early."
Returning from the bye, ACL captain Nashib Nisthar is hopeful of rebounding from a "below par" showing when the Bluebacks face Longford.
With his side sitting third on the ladder, one spot below Longford, Nisthar has plenty of respect for the Tigers and their program.
"Obviously Longford is one of the best teams going around," he said.
"They are always a challenge and it's always interesting to play them because you can test yourself against the best players, so it's good to play against them."
After Longford dropped its first game of the season last week against the reigning premiers, coach Josh Adams is looking for his side to improve on its bowling and fielding after Hadspen made 9-263.
He believes if the Tigers can put in a strong performance in those facets this week, it will "hold them in good stead".
