Game notes: Melbourne has dropped two of its past three matches and now faces an in-form Port Adelaide hoping to cement a place in the AFL’s top four. The injuries have been piling up for the Demons in recent weeks, with co-captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney, Christian Salem, Dom Tyson and Jack Watts all missing games. Tyson and Watts will almost certainly return against the Power, while Salem is a chance and would add some much-needed class to the backline. The Power are in good touch, winning their past five matches and their last against North Melbourne by 70 points. Power midfielders Ollie Wines, Brad Ebert and Chad Wingard, who has spent more time in the middle this year, are all in form and have done plenty of damage to opposition teams during the club’s winning streak.
Thommo’s Tip: Port by 9 points.
