Their two most recent games have resulted in draws with a 32-32 thriller at Aberavon and in awful conditions, a 6-6 draw at home to fellow high flyers Bedwas, outside half Rhys Jones, elder brother of Keys' Dorian kicking two penalties.
Since Keys' defeat in the game at Carmarthen Quins almost two weeks ago, plenty has changed. Prop Marc Jones has announced the game at Carmarthen was his last for the club and he was joining Neath.
Then last Friday came the news that Mark Ring was joining Cardiff RFC as their new backs coach. Ring has played his part in turning around Keys' fortunes over recent seasons but felt it was time to move on. Head coach Greg Woods has stated that a replacement will not be appointed straight away and the role will be left in the hands of coaches already at the club.
Saturday's clash with the league leaders will be tough a test for an out of form Keys side.
They are fortunate to be able to call upon the services of Dragons' fly-half Steffan Jones while his regional teammate, hooker Sam Parry, provides the cover on the bench with Gerwyn Price only just returning from a shoulder injury.
