Edgeworth coach Damian Zane will be rotating his squad once more to keep them fresh as the ladder-leading Eagles look to "top off a big week".
The Eagles are approaching their third game in the space of eight days when they host Adamstown at Jack McLaughlin Oval on Saturday night (7:30pm).
It comes off back-to-back wins, starting with Hamilton (2-1) at home last weekend and followed by Lakes (4-2) at Macquarie Field on Wednesday night.
The results put Edgeworth on top of the Northern NSW National Premier League standings after the opening five rounds.
Another three points would make the ideal early-season period for the Eagles, who are gunning for a fifth straight premiership.
"We've got no other option than to put on some fresh legs," Zane said.
"It was a heavy track during the week and it was wet at home last week as well.
"A win would top off a big week for us."
Zane said he was hopeful Dom Bizzarri would be available despite picking up a knock in the catch-up victory.
Former A-League golden boot winner Daniel McBreen, who has battled sesamoiditis for 12 months, will return for the Eagles this weekend via the bench after last appearing in September's grand final.
"At the end of a tough week it's great to have a guy like Macca around," Zane said.
"He'll be on the bench this week and he'll be right to go if we need him. He just gives everyone a lift."
Edgeworth and Lakes traded four goals in the space of 15 minutes midway through the first half of their rescheduled game.
"Every time we went ahead it felt like we were still playing catch up," Zane said.
Eagles substitute Josemari Atayde then split the scores shortly after the break with virtually his first touch before Aaron McLoughlin sealed the deal in injury time.
"It's a pretty tight competition so you take that midweek," Zane said.
"We weren't at our best but we're happy with the points."
Lakes, who are away to Hamilton on Saturday (6:30pm), remain last on the ladder without any points.
Elsewhere in round six fixtures Lambton have named recent New Zealand import James Pendrigh on the bench to play hosts Valentine at Croudace Bay Sports Complex on Saturday (2:30pm) while fellow Kiwi Brock Messenger (knee) is still out injured.
In Sunday's games Maitland travel to meet Charlestown at Lisle Carr Oval (2:30pm) while Weston are at home to Jets Youth (2:30pm).
Broadmeadow have the bye.
LADDER: Edgeworth 10; Lambton, Jets Youth, Weston, Broadmeadow 7; Charelstown 6; Valentine, Hamilton 4; Adamstown 3; Maitland 1; Lake Macquarie 0.
