Pretoria - The two form sides in the One-Day Cup will have slightly different ambitions when the Titans and the Warriors meet at SuperSport Park on Friday evening.
While the Titans lie second on the table and know that victory in their last two games will secure a home play-off - or possibly even a home final if the Cobras slip up - the Warriors remain in survival mode as they continue their late push for a play-off place.
A win over the Knights on Wednesday kept the Warriors in the competition, although that is also contingent on other results, and coach Malibongwe Maketa confirmed that his side are enjoying the pressure of their must-win situation.
"Every game has been like a final, and the fact that we’ve had to win every game to stay in it has been good pressure - we’ve enjoyed it," he said.
"It’s motivated us to achieve something special.
"It would have been easy to drop out of the competition and have nothing to play for, but we’ve got hungry cricketers who still want to impress and get somewhere."
The Warriors will still have their work cut out for them against the Titans, who have won their last five games in the competition - a run that stretches back to October - yet still feel that they can get even better.
“We are a team with a bit of momentum on our side after the last few games but we’re still not playing to the best of our ability,” captain Henry Davids said.
“There’s still a lot of room for improvement, which we’re working on as a team.”
The Titans will benefit from the return of Theunis de Bruyn, Marchant de Lange, Dean Elgar and David Wiese from the South Africa A squad, while the Warriors will welcome back Simon Harmer.
