IT READS as one of the season's biggest mis-matches but the strategy remains the same for Toowoomba Rangers - keep winning.

Rangers host bottom-placed Carina White in tomorrow's round 16 GBL A1 League clash at Commonwealth Oval as they look to retain their lofty perch at the head of the league ladder.

Rangers are bound for a minor premiership victory and all the spoils that come with it in the finals' series which begins next month.

The only thing that cost them top spot now is complacency.

But Rangers coach Darryl Luchterhand said late-season slip-ups are not apart of their finals' focus.

"It's not going to be an easy game, and we need to make sure we turn up to play," Luchterhand said.

"I know we had a good win over them last time but that was flattered by us scoring 10 runs in the last innings.

"We are pretty much guaranteed the minor premiership and our focus is on being ready for the finals.

"The good news is we are at full strength if everything works with Lewis Codd flying back from Western Australia on Sunday from the softball nationals."
