Gold Coast coach Justin Holbrook is confident his team will not let the opportunity slip after forcing their way back into the NRL finals picture.
The Titans face South Sydney on Saturday on the back of a three-game winning run which has lifted Holbrook's team to seventh.
An upset win over the in-form Rabbitohs would be a huge step in the Titans ending a five-year finals drought, but Holbrook says his players are aware they've achieved nothing yet.
“We all understand what's in front of us,” Holbrook said.
“We've done well to get ourselves in the mix but there's a lot of big games over the next four weeks for us to get there.
“I'm happy with that. Early in the year we had some good wins and I felt like we probably – I wouldn't say celebrated – let that affect us going into the next games, but the last four or five weeks we've really understood we've just got to get the wins, put them behind us and move on.
“We're looking forward to playing which is really important but they're pretty grounded, the playing group now, which is good.”
The last time these teams met the Titans held a 24-10 lead at halftime with David Fifita scoring a hat-trick but ended up losing 40-30 as Benji Marshall inspired a second-half comeback by the Rabbitohs.
Wayne Bennett's men are pushing for a top-two finish after nine straight wins, scoring 150 points in their past three games.
“We know Souths, they are a terrific side and they're up in the top three for a reason, but we're okay with that,” Holbrook said.
“If we want to play finals we've got to try and knock some of these big sides off and we get a good opportunity tomorrow. If we play well I think we can do that.”
Bennett has named the same team which defeated Parramatta last weekend while there's just one change for the Titans with Tyrone Peachey returning from suspension.Internet Explorer Channel Network
