Friday Night Footy After starting the season in a blaze of glory The Power find themselves in the middle of the pack with 2 wins and 2 losses and in need of a win to keep on the right side of the ledger. Carlton have showed plenty of signs of what’s to come and had a stirring win against the Bombers but got brought back down to earth last week against an improving Suns team. Port have had a couple of the their guns misfiring the last two weeks and that’s been the difference between winning and losing, Wines has been sensational so far but needs a more consistent effort from Gray, Wingard and a couple others. At home they should be too strong and skilful for the Blues who still have a long road ahead but will show plenty of pluck in patches through the game.
The weather should clear by tonight and while the ball might get a bit slippery the Power play a much more direct brand of footy and this will give them plenty more scoring opportunities and the edge needed to win. With Krueuzer out and Ryder back in expect Port to get the advantage in the middle and around the ground in the air.
