Gunendah FC will face minor premiers North Companions in the grand final on Saturday buoyed by the knowledge that Scully Park's ironing-board-flat surface is tailor-made for their style of play.
Gunnedah captain Matt Williams said the side's "on-the-floor" passing style plus Scully Park's surface equalled a match made in heaven.
"We do have, I believe, better facilities than what Tamworth has at the minute,' he said. "So we're lucky that we can train on some fairly flat pitches with some grass, where we do just like to pass it around on the floor."
Williams said that when Gunnedah had "come unstuck" this season it had been on hard, uneven Tamworth pitches.
At Scully Park, he said, FC would have an ideal opportunity to execute "what we've been trying to do all season" style wise.
"Hopefully it will be a bit of an advantage for us," he said.
The bus trip to Tamworth on Saturday will be a special occasion for the club, with the first- and reserve-grade sides making the grand final. Williams has been at the club for four years, and it is the first time that has happened during his tenure there.
Gunnedah, the reserve-grade minor premiers, will play South Lightning in the grand final.
In first grade, North Companions and Gunnedah finished the regular season ranked No 1 and No 2. Northies then beat FC 1-0 in the major semi-final to advance straight to the finale.
Mick Gray, North Companions' experienced goalkeeper, described Gunnedah as a "very strong side" who would give "most Premier League sides a run for their money".
"The semi-final against them was a very even contest that could have gone either way," he said, adding: "I think it will be a similar type of game on Saturday."
Gray said the contest "could come down to a moment of brilliance or madness".
