Essendon vs Collingwood Preview

The stage is set for an epic ANZAC Day clash with the two sides coming in with some excellent form over the past few rounds. Essendon have won two in a row for the first time this season and were able to overcome Adelaide in Adelaide last Friday night, pinching the Round 6 game by three points.

After a slow start to the year that saw them lose their first three games, Collingwood have since rebounded by winning three on the trot. Last year’s premiers turned around an early deficit against Port Adelaide to score by 42 points.

Jordan de Goey was again outstanding, while Nick Daicos picked up 30 disposals. That pair loom as key players against Essendon, as does Darcy Cameron, who was another solid contributor in the win. He will lock horns with Sam Draper in the ruck.

Essendon will look to at least break even in the centre clearances with Draper out to give the likes of Zach Merrett and Darcy Parish first use of the footy. Peter Wright returns to the forward line and along with Jake Stringer, Harry Jones and Kyle Langford, the Bombers can go close to kick a winning score but it is the Pies that should get the upper hand in front of what will be a massive crowd at the MCG.
