Port Adelaide Power vs Essendon Bombers Preview
The Bombers still stand a mathematical chance at making the top eight, but they’ll need to pull an unlikely miracle out of their hat this week against top of the table Port Adelaide.
Essendon has lost four of its last five games and are fresh from a soul-crushing loss to Geelong last week that has left plenty of figures pointed at John Worsfold and the leadership group.
Port Adelaide, meanwhile, has shifted in cruise control with three fairly comfortable games against Hawthorn, Sydney and North Melbourne in recent weeks.
The Power are playing on a week’s rest on Saturday, although they do need to take this contest seriously with he Lions and Geelong hot on their heels.
Essendon were belted by 57-points when they last met Port Adelaide, so it is no real surprise to find the line at around 30 points.
The Power have an added advantage playing in front of their home fans at the Adelaide Oval, so they should be taking this one in similar fashion.
