Western Bulldogs vs Adelaide Preview


The Bulldogs leapfrogged the Demons to go on the top of the ladder with four games left in the season last time out.

The accurate Dogs led for the majority of the match, with their cleanliness and x-factor around the contest on for display in wet conditions. They are likely to play in wet conditions again on Saturday, so they will need to be clean in the contest again.

Football returns to Ballarat for the third time this season. Luke Beveridge’s side has played there once this season, with success, defeating the Lions by 19 points.

Meanwhile, the Crows ended a four-match losing streak with a handy 19-point victory over the struggling Hawks.

It was the star players for Adelaide that dragged them deservedly over the line against the Hawks. Rory Laird had 36 disposals and two goals, whilst Taylor Walker kicked a bag of four.

The midfield is an area of optimism on Saturday for Matthew Nicks because despite the Dogs incredible depth in the middle of the ground. The Crows midfield trio of Laird, Ben Keays and Paul Seedsman have the capability of winning that battle, something they will need to do to win.

The Bulldogs have proved themselves as serious premiership contenders this season and should be able to comfortably win this match by a considerable margin.
