North Melbourne vs Collingwood Preview

The Kangaroos lost their seventh game of the season against the undefeated Demons by 30 points.

North Melbourne once again showed glimpses of what they are capable of against the Demons, but a disappointing two-goal second half was a precedent of things to come.

Ben Cunnington was influential in his side’s loss, with the experienced campaigner having 34 disposals, eight clearances and two goals. A performance that will have to be repeated to topple the Pies midfield.

Meanwhile, the Magpies lost their fifth consecutive match against Gold Coast last time out.

Collingwood’s finals hopes have been all but diminished already at the round eight point of the season, but they simply must win this match to keep the pressure on for a finals finish.

The Magpies loss against the Suns at the MCG has put pressure on coach Nathan Buckley with his move to put Darcy Moore in the forward line coming into the spotlight in recent weeks.

Both of these sides have been the worst-performing sides of the season so far, but I believe the Magpies could get the win to ease the pressure off coach Buckley.
