Tyrone Peachey says he has an appreciation for what the Melbourne Storm have been able to achieve this season - but he says the Titans want to spoil their record breaking party.
The Storm have won 18 consecutive games and would equal the NRL's longest winning streak if they were to beat the Titans.
Peachey says the Gold Coast side are confident that they can cause an upset against the ladder leaders.
"I think they've got a few players out this week which is only going to help us hopefully and we've got to take confidence from that second half (against Souths) into Melbourne," Peachey said.
"We went pretty good against them earlier in the year, so we can take a lot of confidence out of that as well."
The two sides met on the Sunshine Coast in round 13 with Melbourne winning 20 points to 14.
Peachey says despite not getting the result, there's plenty from that match that gives him confidence ahead of the round 23 match at Cbus Super Stadium on Thursday.
"There was that one play where we made a break and I think Brian (Kelly) could have passed to the winger and he got tackled and he usually ices those off," Peachey said.
"It was a good opportunity and everyone was disappointed after that because it was a chance to beat Melbourne and not many teams do that.
"We can definitely take confidence out of that ... it'll be the exact same situation we will be in this week and we've just got to attack it."
After three straight wins, the Titans fell to the South Sydney Rabbitohs in the last round.
Peachey says the team will rebound quickly from that result.
"It's lucky that it is a quick turnaround, we can't ponder too much, we've got to learn from it," he said.
"It's a good test for us, Melbourne are going for a record or something this week so it is going to be a big game for us.
"We have had a pretty good run of late versing teams that are all below us and we've been lucky enough to get the wins against them.
"It was an awesome test to see where we are at and obviously we are not where we are supposed to be right now.
"You can't take these top four teams easily because they are on top of the table for a reason, so we've got to go out there and attack them and hopefully play good have a bit of luck and they don't play good footy and we get the win."
With a number of teams still eyeing finals football, Peachey says the Titans know this game will go along way to ensuring that Gold Coast make the top eight.
"Everyone in the bottom of the eight and down to 11 and 12, we are playing for those two spots that are available.
"We've got three more games to put ourselves into a position to play finals.
"It's been a long time, so hopefully we can get a few wins and play finals again."
