The Dubbo Demons will be hoping they can get their first win on the board on Saturday when they travel to Bathurst to take on the Giants.
Five rounds into the AFL Central West Tier 1 season, the Demons have steadily improved but coach Terry Lyons is just hoping for an improved performance.
"We're just hoping to improve on our first round performance when they beat us by a 100 I think," he said.
"We've got a decent squad going over there but it's a similar strength squad to the first round we had so we are just hoping that we get in there and get the ball, work to our plan and continue to improve."
The Demons will take all three of their senior sides across to Bathurst on Saturday and Lyons knows numbers could be scarce.
"Our Tier 2 is going as well but traveling this time is year is always traditionally difficult for us," he said.
The Giants have lost just the one game this season and will be looking to stay level with rivals the Bathurst Bushrangers on points and Lyons knows how good of side the former is.
"They're a maturing team, playing some good footy,"
"They are probably the contenders after the Bushrangers at this point in the season."
Lyons has opted to change the positioning of some of his players this week.
"Isaac Heath who is probably been our best player so far this year, we are going to try him a different role and see how he goes," he said.
"He's played in the backs and midfield and done very well there but he is in form and we have struggled to kick scores recently so we will try him up forward and see how that goes."
Play begins at 2.15pm while the earlier women's match is a top-of-the-table battle.
