Show Preview

The Melbourne Demons travel to the SCG to take on the Sydney Swans in an attempt to collect their first win of the season. Join The Roar for live scores and commentary from 7:20pm (AEST).

Sydney opened their account in Round 3 with a 19-point victory over Carlton, while Melbourne are last on the ladder.

Jake Lloyd has been Sydney’s most impressive player. At the same time, Isaac Heeney has shown flashes of brilliance filtered with some very quiet patches of football.

For the Demons, Clayton Oliver has been at his clearance accumulating best, but it’s the back six that has let Simon Goodwin’s side down. In the first three rounds, the Demons have conceded on average of 114 points, leading the competition for scores against.

The match-up appears as an interesting contest, in recent seasons the Swans have struggled offensively and the Demons defensively.

Lance Franklin could only manage the two majors last week, meaning he is within his average striking distance of Matthew Lloyd’s 926 goal record on 923.

Prediction
An 0-4 start is extremely difficult to come back from. This week looms as a miniature elimination final for the Dees and, with Sydney’s home record as of late, this game is a 50-50.

The game will depend on whether the out of form Melbourne backline can keep Franklin quiet for the full 120 minutes.

Melbourne by 12 points
