  • The Dockers take on the Power in AFL Round 13. 
  • Here is our preview of the Saturday afternoon clash

One of the key games of AFL Round 13 sees the Fremantle Dockers take on Port Adelaide at Perth Stadium on Saturday June 15. 

First bounce is at 2.35pm AWST or 4.35pm AEST and all the action can be seen on Fox Footy. 

Match Preview


The two sides are evenly poised on the ladder after 11 games each this year. Both have won six of their 11 games but Port have the superior percentage and are ranked 7th, while Fremantle are 9th. Both come off the bye in Round 12. 

Prior to the break, Port Adelaide were 70 point winners over St Kilda in Shanghai, China, while closer to home, Fremantle upstaged the fancied Collingwood outfit by four points, courtesy of a late Michael Walters goal. Walters also kicked the winning score against Brisbane the week prior. 

Port Adelaide head in as slight underdogs for this clash but can get on top in the possession count and clearances. They average more in these measures compared to Fremantle and we can expect big games from Travis Boak and Robbie Gray, who head in with good form. 

Fremantle's key players include Walters, who is in career best form, while Nathan Fyfe continues his fine season. Bradley Hill should also offer plenty of outside run. 

Selection News


Fremantle lose their key defender, Alex Pearce, for the rest of the season with an ankle injury. Griffin Logue may come into replace him. Rory Lobb is another player that faces a longterm stint on the sidelines. Sean Darcy faces a fitness test. Stephen Hill is another week or so away. 

At Port, Tom Rockliff is edging closer to a return from a hamstring. Brad Ebert and Charlie Dixon are still a week or two away, as is Ollie Wines. 


Match Odds


Fremantle $1.64
Port Adelaide $2.20

* odds correct at the time of writing


Stats


The two sides last met in Round 17 of 2018 and after a slow start, Fremantle just edged past Port by nine points. That game was at Perth Stadium. It was a different story earlier in the year in Round 1 when Port Adelaide won by 50 points at the Adelaide Oval. 

While Port Adelaide missed out at Perth Stadium last year, they did register a victory over West Coast at the venue earlier on in 2019. Fremantle have won four from five against interstate sides at their home ground in 2019. 

Prediction


Fremantle can register an important win in front of their home fans.
