St Kilda vs Gold Coast Preview

Gold Coast play host to St Kilda in AFL Round 18 and the Suns slim hopes of featuring in their first ever finals campaign are hanging by a thread.

Their now former coach, Stuart Dew, was given the flick earlier this week after his side was unable to match the competition’s best in recent weeks, going down to the ladder leaders, Collingwood, at home in Round 16 by 78 points before travelling to Adelaide and losing to 2nd placed Port Adelaide by 33.

They were unable to stem a 3rd quarter onslaught from the Power, conceding nine goals, which was the difference in the end. This has been a theme in their past three losses. Ben King was subbed out after a disappointing display but Noah Anderson found plenty of the footy once again with 19 disposals, while Touk Miller was serviceable in his return from injury and should only improve. Steven King now takes the reign as head coach.

St Kilda also dropped their Round 17 clash, going down to Melbourne by 21 points. The Saints have now lose three of their past four but did have some excuses against the Demons. Max King (brother of Ben) was subbed out after the first 15 seconds of the game, while Seb Ross (hamstring) and Zaine Cordy (concussion) followed soon after on the sidelined. That trio join a lengthy injury list.

Rowan Marshall, Jack Sinclair, Jack Steele and Nasiah Wanganeen-Milera all found plenty of the footy and will need to fire once again for their side to pick up a crucial win. The Saints will need to be mindful of their ball use heading forward to avoid turnovers, something that has been a theme this year in their losses with opponents feasting on intercept marking.

If they are able to find a better system heading forward, the Saints can take this out an hold their spot in the top eight. Heading into the round, Ross Lyon’s side are 6th, just once game behind 4th placed Melbourne, but only one clear of 10th placed GWS.
