Port Adelaide Power vs Melbourne Demons Preview

We’ve got a bloody big game on our hands at Adelaide Oval this Thursday night as the 2nd placed Dees take on the 4th placed Power.

Port will fancy themselves going into this one.

A home crowd – 100% capacity allowed, the Dees looking a bit off and a chance to cement themselves in the top four towards the business end of the season.

Melbourne had their chances against GWS last week, but it was very much a case of too little, too late and one would hope there’s been a focus on goal kicking this week.

The Power did everything they needed to do against the Hawks in their old mate’s Silk Burgoyne’s 400th last week and very much played back into form.

You may recall that Melbourne did lose at Adelaide Oval earlier in the year in a thriller against the Crows and no matter which SA team you play, a full house of rabid South Australian’s is rather intimidating.

It should be a ripping contest and hopefully, a sneak peek at what we will see come September.

I’ll take the Power at the line.
