Show Preview

Charlie Dixon returns for his first game of the season as Port Adelaide look to return to the winners’ list against Essendon. Join The Roar for live scores and rolling coverage from 4:40pm (AEST).

After four consecutive wins, the Power’s run of form hit a wall in defeat to Geelong last week. It leaves last year’s preliminary finalists with a 4-6 record, and still with plenty of work to do to recover from their five losses to start the year.

Dixon’s return, having missed the first ten rounds with a series of ankle injuries, is a major boost for the Power, whose forward structure has struggled mightily without his presence. It means emerging youngster Mitch Georgiades makes way, with recruit Jeremy Finlayson and the developing Todd Marshall to join Dixon in attack.

The Bombers have been even poorer than the Power to start 2022, with last year’s surprise finalists sitting in the bottom four with a 2-8 record.

Rebounding defender Mason Redman has been one of the few shining lights for the Dons this year, so his absence through suspension is a major blow. However, the returns of ruck Andrew Phillips, defender Jordan Ridley and midfield tough nut Jye Caldwell soften the blow.
