THIS year's Country Cup campaign from Coffs Harbour's representative team is shaping up quite nicely and with Round 3 just about to start, the local team will be looking to progress against Tweed.

Coffs defeated Macleay Valley in the second round of the knockout competition to set up the glamour tie between themselves and Tweed on Sunday.

While confident of victory the Coffs Harbour unit is aware a strong team effort will be needed to progress in the tournament.

Historically, the odds are stacked in Coffs' favour, especially seeing as it defeated Tweed last season by a sizable margin away from home.

Coffs Harbour District Cricket Association president, Ken Robinson, said he was expecting a stern test from the visitors but quietly played down their chances for an upset this weekend.

"We've beaten Tweed twice in the last three years, so the track record is quite good," Robinson said.

"Unfortunately, we weren't seeded this year but I'm quite confident we can topple the visitors this weekend."

The 50-over match at the Coffs Coast Sport and Leisure Park is set to begin at 10am on Sunday.
