The New Zealand netball will be fighting to keep the five test trans-tasman series alive when the take on Australia in the fourth game in Invercargill this afternoon.

The Australians lead the series 2 games to one on the back of consecutive victory's and a win today will seal the series for the Diamonds.

It's been a disappointing series so far for the Ferns who started strongly with a win in the first game but have struggled to find form since.

The Silver Ferns will be hoping their attack can match their impressive defensive end this afternoon after the Ferns offence battled to get quality ball to their shooters in the first three tests.

The game gets underway at 4pm.
