The Western Magpies will meet last season's Premiers Labrador in the QAFL Match of the Round at Chelmer on Saturday.
The Pies have had one hick-up in the past 6 matches and other than that have taken all before them in the middle part of the season.
Labrador are also on a surge after a slow start to the season and are growing in confidence each match as they get key troops back into their lineup
The Pies match committee had a pleasant selection dilemma on Thursday night with the availability of Tim McEvoy and Lachlan Woods after recovering from injury and with almost a full list to choose from, it was going to be tough. However, unfortunately both Alex Dickfos and Brenton Saunders succumbed to injury and it was 2 in and 2 out.
The Pies were a little flat last week and will need to be at their best from the first bounce in what will be a classic match pitting thr two form sides of the competition against each other on what looks like could be a very wet Saturday afternoon classic.
