The Melbourne Demons seek to secure two consecutive victories as they host the North Melbourne Kangaroos at Adelaide Oval. Join The Roar for live scores from 6:10pm (AEST).
This is bound to be an intriguing Sunday evening clash, as neither team have demonstrated any consistent winning form this season.
The Demons did secure a victory to place them back on the winners’ list, a 51-point thrashing of the Crows, largely led by a seven-goal final term. That win did follow two losses, though: a four-point defeat to Brisbane and an awful 51-point thumping against Port Adelaide. Melbourne sit 12th, only a game out of the eight.
North have been a worse side. Their win over Adelaide last week snapped a six-game losing streak, but they fell back to earth with a loss to Geelong on Wednesday night. The Kangaroos are likely to finish in the bottom four, and it is difficult to see where wins can come from. They have also lost Ben Brown to an injury, further complicating their endeavours.
Neither side have played in South Australia this season, with the Kangas losing their only clash here last year and the Dees not having played at the venue since 2018 (when they secured one win and one defeat).
