Port Adelaide v Collingwood Tips and Predictions - Pies to run Power close

Gary Emmerson 11 Aug 2017
  • Port Adelaide have won the last three against Collingwood
  • Power are now just one win inside the top 8
  • The Magpies are unbeaten in their last four games

Port Adelaide will attempt to right the wrongs of last week's Showdown defeat when they host Collingwood in the final game of Round 21 at Adelaide Oval on Sunday.

The game gets underway at 4.40pm AEST (4.10pm ACST) and will be broadcast on Fox Footy, while AFL Live Vision is also available to ALL CrownBet members. Every Match, wherever you are. 

Match Preview


Port Adelaide head into Sunday's clash with Collingwood with a point to prove following last week's defeat to rivals Adelaide Crows.

The Power failed to fire in the Showdown as the Crows ran out 84-point winners and that loss could have serious consequences for the club's top 8 ambitions.

It is now only three wins from the last six games and, although they sat fifth on the ladder heading into the round, the congested standings mean they are just one result from dropping out of the finals spots.

Will they recover from last week's no-show - which was the biggest ever defeat in Showdown history, or will it prove a headache at the wrong point in the season?

Collingwood are unbeaten in the last four, a run which includes a draw with the Crows, and will have gained confidence from the comfortable victory over North Melbourne last week.

It has all been a little too late for the Magpies, however, but given their form they can take the fight to the Power, who have won the last three head to heads between the sides.

Team News


It is no surprise that Port Adelaide make changes. One is enforced with Jack Hombasch out with a hip injury, while Sam Pepper-Powell is rested. Aaron Young, Angus Monfries and Jackson Trengrove are dropped with Dan Houston, Dougal Howard, Chad Wingard, Jacke Neade and Brendon Ah Chee coming in.

Collingwood lose Brodie Grundy to suspension and Daniel Wells and Levi Greenwood to injury. Mason Cox, Callum Brown and James Aish are the replacements.

Stats


  • Port Adelaide have won the last three against Collingwood
  • Power are now just one win inside the top 8
  • The Magpies are unbeaten in their last four games

Predictions and Tips


Collingwood could well win this one, but take them at the line for extra security.
