Injuries keep stacking up at Southcity, but the Bulls have been boosted by a couple of big inclusions to tackle Albury at Greenfield Park on Saturday.
The competition's leading tryscorer Jake Dooley returns after missing the past two games due to an overseas holiday.
He slots back into his regular football role with Harry Lucas away fishing this week.
Captain-coach Kyle McCarthy is thrilled to have him back, especially after losing Usaia O'Sullivan and Nathan Rose in the past three weeks.
"We've lost a lot of our tryscorers recently so to get one back so help us put more points on the board," McCarthy said.
Luke McBeath returns at lock however Hayden Jeans comes out of the side after picking up a hamstring problem.
He'll miss at least the next two weeks with the problem.
It means Nick Skinner returns to the front row with Cameron Copeland back into the side on the bench.
McCarthy hopes having McBeath back at lock can help the Bulls speed up their game.
"It will be good having him back," he said.
"He's another solid defender and hopefully he'll have a bit more leg speed through the middle which can help inject me into the game."
Southcity are currently second on the Group Nine ladder, a point behind leaders Gundagai, but also only point ahead of the fourth-placed Thunder.
With a second chance come finals time on the line, McCarthy is looking for his team to respond after a 16-10 loss to third-placed Tumut on Sunday.
The Bulls scored a 36-10 win when the teams met earlier in the season, but McCarthy expects a much bigger test on the border this time around.
"It is a tough road trip and they've obviously improved a mile since we last played them getting a good win over Gundagai," he said.
"Hopefully we can dust them off and stay in the top two.
"If we drop another one then we are right down the bottom in the second chance situation."
A top three finish is what McCarthy has his sights on with four rounds to go before finals.
It enables them a second chance come the return to the five-strong finals series.
He's looking to straighten up their attack after falling short against the Blues last week.
Meanwhile Albury's coach Adrian Purtell is set to play his first game since injury his quadriceps a month ago.
However he's elected to come back into the side in the centres with Robbie Byatt and Bronson Meehan in the halves.
