Fareham expect to have former Great Britain Olympian Richard Mantell back for Sunday's Western Conference play-off showdown with second placed Oxford Hawks at Henry Cort, 2pm.
It's a match Fareham ideally need to get something from, in order to stay ahead of Bristol University to see who grabs the seventh place play-off spot, both teams having reached the 20 point mark on the eve of the final round of matches.
Fareham go into the Oxford match with a nine-goal superior difference to Bristol, whose final game is away to enigmatic Birmingham University.
Quite simply, win, lose or draw, Fareham must better Bristol University's result in the Midlands.
No such problem with champions Havant, who will want to end their league programme on a successful note at third placed Olton & West Warwicks. Havant tied up the league title with a 3-1 win over Chichester, who host Team Bath, 1.30pm.
Trojans ladies, meanwhile, chase a sixth straight win when they host lowly Barnes in the Investec Women's WC at Stoneham Lane on Saturday.
They are certain to finish third, as per last season, behind runaway champions Stourport and Gloucester City, the runners-up.
Trojans men, runners-up to Guildford in South League Premier Division 2, wind up their programme against Tulse Hill & Dulwich.
