After squandering the top spot on the ladder last week, the Dees shouldn’t be short on motivation ahead of their trip to Adelaide on Thursday night.

Simon Goodwin’s side was never really in the game against GWS last week, an uncharacteristically flat performance that largely boiled down to some basic inaccuracy in front of goal.

Those same skill errors will no doubt cost the Dees this week against a red-hot Port Adelaide side that has now won four from its last five.

The Power spoiled Shaun Burgoyne’s 400 party last week with a 34-point win over Hawthorn, and with only two losses at home, Port appears great value to add to their record with Xavier Duursma potentially returning to the side.

Melbourne has been a great bounce-back bet following a previous loss, but after struggling to find the goals last week against the Giants, it’s hard to feel overly confident in their chances.

The Power, on the other hand, enjoyed a period of nine straight goals last week as they feasted on Hawthorn’s inaccuracy.  

Verdict

If Port can control the corridor and allow emerging Brownlow contender Ollie Wines to do his thing, they should be winning this potential finals preview.
