And coach Lyn Jones doesn't not want any slip-ups before the big match.
He said: 'Ebbw Vale have become a team you cannot underestimate as they proved in our meetings at the Gnoll earlier in the season. They could be described as Wales' form team at the moment, particularly in the domestic league'
Neath have played four games in the Welsh Premiership so far this season, winning two, and losing two. Vale have nine points from six games played, thanks to three victories.
Vale were dumped out of the PARKER PEN SHEILD by Pau last weekend.
Neath duo Steve Jones (neck) and Patrick Horgan (shoulder) both have late fitness tests before the match, and are only rated as having a 50% chance of playing.
