Port Adelaide face a tough ask as they try to work out their way out of a slump against Essendon. We’ll have live scores from 2.10pm AEST.

The Power’s last win against a Melbourne team was in round 10 against Carlton.

While they’ve developed a habit of upsetting Victorian teams at AAMI Stadium this year, in none of their games since round 10 have they been within five goals at the final siren.

As for the Bombers, they sit one game out of the top four in sixth place, but must rebound after a loss last week.

Percentage is starting to become a huge factor in the finals race, so games like this could be looked at by James Hird as an opportunity to gain ground.

Port last week went down to Adelaide in the Showdown by 58 points.

The man who’s future is up in the air, Travis Boak, had 25 touches and a goal, while defender Troy Chaplin registered 10 marks and 22 disposals.

The Bombers went down to St Kilda in a surprising 71-point loss at Etihad Stadium.

The team was hurt by injuries to Michael Hurley, Kyle Hardingham and Kyle Reimers, but the Saints were clearly the better team on the night.


Heath Hocking, Sam Lonergan, Patrick Ryder and Hurley are all out for the Bombers, while Jacob Surjan and John Butcher are the key Port outs.
