    The Carlton Blues and Collingwood Magpies are two of only four winless teams left in the AFL after two weeks, but barring an unlikely draw one of them will get out of that group tonight.

    Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Friday night, starting from 7:50pm AEDT.

    Both of these teams have made two changes ahead of tonight’s match.

    Carlton brought Cam O’Shea, formerly of Port Adelaide, in for his debut last week, but his performance was not quite up to scratch and he’s been dropped back to the VFL.

    They’ve also lost Ciaran Byrne to injury which will mean a bit less run out of the backline, but the good news for them is that their No. 1 ruckman Matthew Kreuzer is back, as is Matthew Kennedy.

    Kreuzer’s absence was a major factor in last week’s loss to the Gold Coast Suns as it allowed Jarrod Witts to run wild against some pretty sub-standard competition at times.

    However another telling factor (which you may have picked up on) was Tom Lynch kicking eight goals, and that being the case it’s a bit of a surprise that Liam Jones has kept his spot.

    Given that Jacob Weitering is being moved back to defence this week, Carlton will be fielding a backline of four 190cm players against a forward line that only contains two.

    That is of course Ben Reid and Mason Cox, who are back in the side this week after missing Round 2 through injury and suspension respectively.

    That might make you worry that the Blues could get done in by a quality small forward, but luckily for Carlton Jamie Elliott is still injured and Alex Fasolo has inexplicably been left on the sidelines as an emergency.

    Collingwood’s two outs are both injury-forced – Darcy Moore and Tim Broomhead both had to leave mid-match in Round 2. Moore will be gone about a month, Broomhead’s season is over due to a broken leg.

    I reckon Carlton will bounce back from last week’s uncharacteristically poor effort and give Collingwood something of a surprise this evening.

    Carlton by 12.

      I’m not saying it was overly impressive by the Pies, but to win when you’re missing most of your best forward line was a great result. Suddenly, the VFL Pies win by 20 goals, Elliott, De Goey, Mayne among the best. Options open up, if only we weren’t meeting the crows away next week we could have squared the ledger. Bucks was great Friday night, he is showing why he got the extra two year contract.

      Whoever is the Carlton midfield coach needs their butt kicked to the kerb, how many times was there a loose pies mid 10 yard’s forward of the ruck for the easy release if the pies won the contested ball (which they did more often than not).

      Once or twice I can understand but you need to be able to adapt on the run and man that position up and I saw none of that from the Blues coaching group last night.

      Sticking to a game plan is desirable, but the great coaches see what’s not working and fix it quickly, love what Bolton is doing overall for the club , but his game day coaching need to improve.

        Brinnx – you have to remember our midfield is very young, a coach can only do so much.

        One of the positives for me was that we fought back in the second half, not so long ago that would have ended up being a 10 goal plus loss after the second quarter, at least this time we found a way back.

        Collingwood fumbled a lot early and then got its act together. They controlled the game and impacted on how Carlton wanted to play. It wasn’t so much that Carlton was bad, Collingwood was just well organized. With so many out, Buckley is doing really well. Very competitive against GWS last week too.

          Good summation Don, although I would highlight that Collingwood simply denied the blues the ball in that second quarter and when the blues did get it they gave it up

      I admit I didn’t see much of the game, mostly 2nd and 3rd quarters, but what I did see was Collingwood overuse the ball horribly and very lucky they were only doing so against Carlton. One probably not mid-table side and one certainly not mid-table side, on that form.

      Perhaps ironically, the main positive is with Carlton. They can never be that bad again, surely, yet in the end lost by a fairly moderate margin (not close, but not the blow-out it seemed).

          I admire you defending your side Macca, but with North, Eagles and Dogs next, Bolton would need at least one – two wins or even you will surely have doubts as those three won’t be challenging you’d think at the pointy end.

      That’s 17 loses in a row under lights at the MCG now for the Blues but the biggest problem is how rapidly they are again going backwards.
      Carlton seem super slow,right across the field and their disposal and tackling skills seem non existent at times.

      Again there was very little to like but Mullett was super bad,why did Carlton put him on their list? And why is Lamb still on the list let alone getting games,prized recruit Rhyse Palmer would have been better staying on.

      Young players can be forgiven to some extent but Weitering desperately needs a spell,and who decided Dow was ready for AFL?,he’s miles off and needs a bit of development in the VFL. Polson also looks a long way off being AFL ready.

      Wouldn’t mind seeing Macredie in next week,he’s shown a bit more than Weitering despite draft spots and I wouldn’t mind seeing if Lang can play or if he’s just another one of SOSs recycled master strokes.

      Bolton is becoming a bigger worry by the week,he simply had no idea tonight and was given a masterclass by Buckley of all people.
      Carlton fans are furious,and rightly so,this shambles has been going on for the entire century now.

                Being right to go next week makes it hard to pick him this week though doesn’t it.

      I should also say the Kreuzer v Grundy battle was a great one.

      Also after all the criticism of the blues losing the inside 50’s in week one they have now one them in the last 2 weeks but still lost, goes to show it is quality over quantity. might b time for McKay though.

      Apart from the second quarter the blues were simply terrible and just couldn’t get the ball or keep hold of It when they did there was a bit to be positive about for the blues, they kept working hard in that second half.

      C Curnow had another good game, I liked Cuningham off half back, Fisher kept working hardDow took a step forward but just needs to tidy up his diaposal, which will come as he builds he fitness, and Murphy racked up the possessions and tackles.

        Was an ok game. We should’ve won by more and finished the game poorly. Sidebottom will chop up any team if he’s allowed to get that much of the ball, simply brilliant tonight. We looked much better up forward just having the bigger blokes to kick too. Grundy Got the chocolates in the ruck. C Curnow has potential to be a gun and Cripps is a very good player although he looked frustrated at times

          Pretty fair summary Tom, Cripps Di look frustrated although that happens when you are constantly tackled before the ball even gets to you.

          Chris, the Ess vs Coll rivalry is utterly manufactured (via ANZAC Day) and I say that as a Dons fan. The two clubs have a very cordial relationship. Yes, their fans like to rib each other but it rarely gets nasty.

          Essendon has actual rivalries with Hawthorn and Carlton, although they haven’t mattered a whole lot for about 15 years because Essendon and Carlton haven’t been contenders.

          I’m looking forward to the Showdown this year because Adelaide and Port are both gunning for the top four, as West Coast and Freo were a couple of years back. Rivalries have extra spice where there is something more than pride at stake.

          Inane comment Rotcod, footy doesn’t work like that. Pies fans should know, we don’t usually kick straight. Think more our goals from closer range, probably a coaching strategy to not blaze away but pick out mobile smaller targets.
