The Albany and Districts Cricket Association are taking a do-or-die attitude into their second Country Cup fixture this Sunday on their home turf.

The ADCA suffered a heavy defeat in their Belt Up Country Cup opener last month and another loss in round two would all but extinguish their hopes of making the final.

There is a small amount of rain forecast for Sunday but the ADCA are confident they will be able to get a turf wicket up for the clash against Peel Cricket Association.

The local side will be hoping they can put together a stronger team than in round one, but they are yet to settle on a squad.

Several senior figures were missing from the team that was thumped by the WA Invitational XI in Narrogin in round one.

Peel won their opening-round clash by four wickets over Bunbury and Districts, with the Bunbury side then recording a comfortable victory over the WA Invitational XI in their round-two clash last weekend.

With the other three teams all having a win under their belts, a win could move Albany and Districts on to equal points going into the final round.

However, the thumping defeat in the opening round dented their net run rate, meaning they will likely need to win their final two games and have other results go their way.

The game is set to start at 11am on Sunday.
