Port Adelaide vs. Carlton

Friday, Adelaide Oval 7:50pm, AEST

The Power recorded their second loss in a row on the weekend, going down to the Giants. They will look to bounce back in round five, hosting the Blues on Friday night. Carlton went down to the Suns in round four, and again look like they will have a tough year..

Port Adelaide will welcome back ruckman Paddy Ryder, this has significant importance due to the withdrawal of Blues ruckman Matthew Kreuzer.

Carlton did win the last match-up between the two sides in round eight of 2016. Sam Docherty had a day out in that game, finishing with 33 disposals and 13 marks.

The Power have been brought down to earth after a blistering start to season 2017. However, expect them to get back on the winners list this weekend, their physicality should be too much for the Blues.

Tip: Power by 37
