The Glamorgan Dragons can put one foot firmly in the Twenty20 Cup knockout stages with a fourth successive victory against the Gloucestershire Gladiators in Bristol tonight.
Last Friday's thrilling one-wicket win over defending champions Somerset ensured the Welsh county inched a step closer to the competition's quarter-finals.
And a record fourth victory in the Midlands/West/Wales zone over the second-placed Gladiators will see the 2004 semi-finalists take another major stride towards the last eight stage.
It all means Glamorgan will be in bullish mood when they make the short trip across the Severn Bridge.
The transformation from whipping boys to serious cup contenders has been a remarkable turnaround for a side which only managed one win in a dismal C&G Trophy campaign and are currently propping up the second division of the county championship.
That form prompted the bookmakers to dismiss the Dragons as 33-1 rank outsiders before a ball was bowled in this season's Twenty20 Cup - despite Glamorgan having had sustained success with the white ball over the past few years.
So it will be a case of same again for Robert Croft's men as they look to defy the odds once again and embark on the start of another set of crucial games this week.
An unchanged side will head to the West Country in bullish mood, before returning to Sophia Gardens tomorrow evening to take on Warwickshire with another large crowd expected under the lights in the live televised clash.
Yet despite their blistering start to the competition, Croft believes there is still room for improvement.
'We are playing pretty well but we still have a lot more to offer,' said the Glamorgan captain. 'If you analyse our performance over Somerset, there are areas of our game we need to still improve on.
'But we are all delighted with our start and winning form and it's imperative we keep this run going now in the competition.'
Croft was the latest player to come to the 20-over party last time out - a feature of the side's performances in the competition to date.
All-rounder Richard Grant, with a rapid maiden half century, claimed the man-of-the-match award, while Brendon McCullum, Mike Powell, David Hemp, James Franklin and Mark Wallace have all made significant contributions with the bat.
