West Coast vs Fremantle Preview

The Dockers finals chances took a massive hit after losing to the Lions by 64 points last week.

Fremantle was never able to get the game on their terms and their chances of an upset victory on Sunday evening just got a whole lot tougher, with Andrew Brayshaw offered a one-match suspension.

Not only did they fail to get the four points against Brisbane, but they also took an unneeded percentage scalp. Justin Longmuir’s side is now the least likely of the teams on 36 points to make the finals, with their percentage on 87.7.

Meanwhile, the Eagles will be looking to keep their spot in the top eight, after jeopardising their spot with two straight losses.

West Coast looked out of their depth against the Demons in the third quarter and was destined for a shattering loss. However, a brief intermission due to lightning sparked life into Eagles, but it was too little too late.

Although Adam Simpson’s side has been inside the eight for much of the season, two back-to-back losses will leave them nervous in the coming fortnight. They can still easily fall out of the eight if results don’t go their way.

Not only is it a derby, but it’s also a grudge match for both sides, with finals football on the line. The Eagles certainly have the quality, and I expect them to get the four points in a feisty encounter.

Eagles vs Dockers Team News

Fremantle will have Bailey Banfield, Sam Switkowski and Tobe Watson for Sunday’s clash. Andrew Brayshaw and Nathan Wilson are amongst those unavailable.
