    Match preview:

    The Gold Coast Suns are back on the road this weekend to take on the Adelaide Crows at Adelaide Oval on Saturday night. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match from 7:40pm AEST.

    The Adelaide Crows beat Sydney at the SCG last Friday night; they fought harder and had a better work-rate than the week before.

    Captain Taylor Walker led the way with four goals and responded to the hefty criticism he had been receiving from South Australian media.

    Gold Coast held off a last-quarter attack from Brisbane to win QClash15 last Sunday. The Suns were good early and should have run out with an easy win, but the Lions kept challenging until the final siren.

    It was a better game by the Suns, who needed to get another win on the board after two losses in the West.

    The Crows will be without injured defenders Kyle Hartigan (hamstring) and Jake Kelly (hand) this week. Midfielder Matt Crouch and wingman David Mackay come into the side.

    Still no Rory Sloane in the middle for the Crows, but the return of reigning Club Champion Matt Crouch is a huge inclusion for the Adelaide midfield.

    Gold Coast have made two changes, one forced, to their QClash winning team.

    Darcy Macpherson fractured his fibula and will be sidelined for up to 14 weeks. Michael Rischitelli has been omitted, but is a travelling emergency.

    Michael Barlow and Max Spencer come in for their first games in the AFL for 2018.

    Adelaide’s Andy Otten reaches the long-awaited milestone of 100 games this round. Drafted in 2007, Otten’s AFL journey has been one of the tougher ones. Riddled with injury and often coming in to fill the gap of an injured star, Otten has toughed it out and finally gets to reach 100 AFL games.

    Prediction
    If they bring the intensity we saw against Sydney last weekend, it could be a demolition job by the Crows. However, just like Collingwood did two weeks ago, the Gold Coast Suns can pounce should Adelaide take a reserved approach with lacklustre effort.

    The Crows will be too strong on Saturday night though and might even get to flex their muscles to take a percentage-boosting win.

      Commanding victory by the Crows, who really did dominate all night. Gold Coast were good, except for their second quarter where a large amount of the damage was done.

      Crows by 48.

      BEHIND CROWS

      Greenwood is awarded with a free after a great tackle. He handballs to Seedsman but he can’t make the distance and its rushed over the line.

      GOAL SUNS

      Swallow with the snap shot on goal for his third. Definitely some positives for the Suns in this second half, with Swallow having a great game.

      6:30 on the clock – two Gold Coast goals will take it back to my predicted margin… But I think the Crows will look to finish strong here.

      GOAL CROWS

      McGovern floats in for a good grab, his set shot on a slight angle (opposite side to Jenkins’ previous shot). And he makes no mistake of it, although it is tight.
