PASIG--JPV Marikina had ended their seven-match losing run in the past two weeks, but Dan Padernal is not contented on what they have right now.

Although they've trashed slumping Global Cebu and picked a point against leaders and champions Ceres Negros, the third-year gaffer hopes for his side to do more ahead of Wednesday's tussle at the latter's stable in Biñan, while being designated as the home side.

"The boys are motivated," he said. "Fourth place is right up for us versus Stallion."

Padernal added that they side had something to fix after ending their losing run with four points in their past two fixtures.

"The telling point right now is the fitness of the players. We still have to manage things to control the match," he added.

With only a point separating them and Stallion Laguna, a win for them will give them more than just a four-point lead against them on their first June fixture.

Voltes will bid farewell at Biñan at the end of the month, as they return to their Camp Big Falcon in Marikina in July, causing massive excitement in the northernmost city in the Metro four months since their glorious debut in the new season.

"They are very excited and waiting for us. We hope we can put up results for June before coming back." Padernal concluded.
