The Pies and Dogs are both caught in the log-jam from seventh to eleventh place, with only one game separating the five teams. Should the Bulldogs win well they can jump as high as fifth place and look likely to feature in September, but lose and they teeter on the brink of missing completely. On the back of four straight losses, the Pies must win to return to the top eight; a loss and they seem destined to kiss finals goodbye.
Collingwood have won four from the their last five against the Doggies but their task is made difficult with Travis Cloke joining Elliott on the sidelines. Will a forward stand up for the Pies today or will the Doggies prove too strong at Etihad?
Thommo’s tip: Western Bulldogs by 12 points.
