The Melbourne Demons are trying to crack back into the eight, but standing in their way are the St Kilda Saints at TIO Traeger Park in Alice Springs. Join The Roar for live scores from 7:40pm (AEST).
After a blistering three-game winning streak, the Demons hit a speed bump last week with a potentially costly loss to the Western Bulldogs. They’re nowhere near out of the finals race, but it’ll be a tight race to the finish and they can’t afford too many more slip-ups.
St Kilda have one hand on a spot in the finals, but they’ve got a tricky run home and a loss here would really put the cat amongst the pigeons. They were competitive to the very end against Brisbane last week, but fell short by two points, giving them two losses in three games.
Melbourne have lost their last three games against St Kilda after having won the previous three. The Demons have a poor record at their adopted home in the Alice Springs, losing on four of their six visits to the red centre. St Kilda have never played at the venue.
