James Mack has called on his fellow Albion batsmen to show more patience, after edging Court House to get first-innings points at Wolseley Oval.
In a battle of the competition's two dominant sides, Albion were 9-90 at stumps on day one on Saturday after dismissing Court House for 80.
Jono Crowe (4-13 off four overs) and Gary Briggs (3-32 off 14 overs) were Albion's best bowlers.
Ben Haire (22) and Farran Lamb (18) fared best with the bat for Court House.
Three Court House bowlers snared three wickets each: Isaac Harris (3-29 off 10 overs), Jayde Campbell (3-19 off seven overs) and Brodie Cleal (3-22 off nine).
Damian Baldwin (30) and Jake Vigor (20) top-scored for Albion.
No 4 Mack, who made six, said: "It's just been up and down with the bat for every team this year.
"But we've scored some good runs up until this week ... and Court House have the ability to do the same.
"I think it's just a matter of who applies themselves the best on the day.
"It's not too much to do with anything else, other then just a bit of application."
Mack said both sides were in a position to secure an outright win.
"We've only got a 10-run lead with one wicket in hand, and we know that they're a lot better batting side than what they showed on Saturday," he said.
"Even though we bowled well, they're still capable of scoring a lot more than that - and so are we."
To reverse Albion's first-innings batting performance, Mack said there needed to be healthier partnerships.
"We just lost a big clump of wickets in one hit, and then there was a steady flow of wickets after that," he said.
"If we lose one or two, we really need to have a couple of guys who consolidate and chip away at the runs and just be a little bit more patient."
Despite the tumble of wickets, Mack said there was no need to get overly concerned.
"Both sides bowled well," he said.
