COMING off its first win for the season, Stratford will travel to Paynesville for round three of East Gippsland football.
The Gulls were embarrassed at home by Lindenow before the Easter break, kept score-less in the second half, while an emboldened Swans team knocked over Orbost-Snowy Rovers, keeping Curtley Nettleton to a single goal after he scored nine in round one.
Saturday's result will come down to whether Stratford can keep up the momentum following a week off, or if Paynesville, which is win-less, can get off its feet.
Boisdale-Briagolong will host Lakes Entrance, which narrowly defeated Wy Yung last round.
The Bombers began the season strongly but were crushed by a bold Lucknow team. If Boisdale-Briagolong can lift its football, the Bombers will be in with a chance.
The Tigers will visit Lindenow, and will be hard-pressed to get a win, while ladder-leading Lucknow will make the long trip to Orbost to face a humbled Blues.
