Maryborough could finish its 2019 with a win if all goes to plan against Strathfieldsaye this weekend.
In the final home and away round of the season, the Magpies will be grateful to meet the Storm for their final game after a tough year of results.
In 15 games Maryborough has claimed just three wins, over South Bendigo in round one and Golden Square in round five and 14.
The side also drew Kyneton in round seven, but went on to lose to the same side in their second meeting in round 16.
Similarly, Storm has only enjoyed four wins this season among tough competition, making this weekend’s clash important for both sides.
