We head into Round 4 of the AFLW and there are another five games in store with the action set to get underway on Saturday afternoon when Geelong take on Carlton. 

Here is our preview of the round. 

GEELONG v CARLTON
Saturday 23 February, 4.45pm at GMHBA Stadium

Geelong and Carlton kick off proceedings and had contrasting results in Round 3. The Cats were outclassed to the tune of 29 points by Adelaide, while a resurgent Carlton knocked over GWS by the same margin. Both sides have won just one game but in the skewed system, they occupy the top two spots of Conference B. A win for either will see them close to gaining an unlikely finals spot. The Blues should head in with confidence and with Brianna Davey and a number of their rising stars starting to find their feet, they might just be able to sneak the points here. 

WESTERN BULLDOGS v BRISBANE
Saturday 23 February, 7.15pm at Whitten Oval

The Western Bulldogs went down to the competition's pacesetters last weekend, North Melbourne, by 31 points, while Brisbane were no match for Melbourne, losing by 39. Last year's runners up have dropped off defensively this season and will need big games from their top end players including Sabrina Frederick-Traub. However, we can expect the Dogs to get the points in what is a replay of last year's decider. Asides from a 10 minute period in the second quarter last weekend they were very competitive against North and in front of their home ground they can stay in touch with Conference A.  

ADELAIDE v FREMANTLE
Saturday 23 February, 9.35pm at TIO Stadium

This shapes as one of the key games of Round 4 and Adelaide will be looking to inflict Fremantle's first loss of AFLW 3. The Crows suffered a one point defeat in the opening round of the season but have bounced back with two emphatic wins. Ebony Marinoff, Anne Hatchard and Erin Phillips were on fire in the 33 point win over hapless Collingwood last weekend and the Crows can head in full of confidence. Expect them to get the job done in a close one

COLLINGWOOD v GWS GIANTS
Sunday 24 February, 2.05pm at Morewell Recreation Reserve

This encounter pits the two winless sides up against one another and both have had their fare share of issues in front of goal. The Magpies have accumulated just 50 points in their three games, while the Giants have fared slightly better with 86. Alan McConnell's side will need to use the ball much better than what they did last week when going down. If they are able to execute this part of their game more effectively they can break through. 

MELBOURNE v NORTH MELBOURNE
Sunday 24 February, 4.05pm at Casey Fields

Melbourne get their chance to test themselves against a North outfit that have dominated thus far. Emma King, Jasmine Garner, Jess Duffin and Mo Hope are among some of the Kangaroos key contributors up forward this season and their side have a huge percentage of 250.8 at this stage. However, Melbourne are not to be underestimated and notched up 19 scoring shots in their win over the Lions last weekend. Alisha Newman and Karen Paxman shape as a couple of the key players for the Demons and a win will see them right in contention in Conference A.
