    Match preview:

    The St Kilda Saints and Melbourne Demons meet in a Round 7 clash at Etihad Stadium. Join The Roar for live scores and commentary from 3:20pm (AEST).

    This match looms as crucial for both teams. St Kilda, aside from an excellent draw with the Giants, have shown very little over the past few weeks and their scoring options have all but dried up.

    Last week’s diabolical performance against the Hawks has lit the furnace under the club and they need to respond this week with a much stronger and courageous effort.

    Melbourne saw off a bizzare Bombers outift last week, running away with the game in an entertaining second half where they found their attacking mojo and moved into top-eight contention.

    It was a satisfying victory coming off two losses in the fortnight prior.

    St Kilda are nowhere near even thinking about the top eight at this stage and will need some of their young midfield stars to stand up and be counted.

    Prediction
    Despite their best efforts, the Saints will not be able to turn their form around immediately and there might be a few more weeks of pain before they start to hit the scoreboard more frequently and threaten opposition defences.

    Melbourne by five goals.

      The Melbourne Demons have put the St Kilda Saints to the sword to the tune of 39 points at Etihad Stadium in a solid win for the visitors.

      More pressure will now build on the Saints who are struggling to score and Alan Richardson must be running out of ideas when it comes to getting this squad back on track.

      The match started competitively and the Saints fought hard for the first two quarters before the quality of the Demons list told and Clayton Oliver and Christian Petracca began to significantly influence the game.

      Tom McDonald was excellent as a target up front and the Saints continued with their woeful kicking in front of goal with at least four golden opportunities for majors slipping by.

      The Demons are building well this season after an inconsistent start and looking great in mid-field even without Jack Viney. The news around the Saints will be interesting throughout the week and the time to make a change at the Club might be coming sooner rather than later.
