Western Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge says that his players are not talking about playing finals just yet, despite an impressive victory over the Magpies.

The Bulldogs have won five of their past six games and are in sixth spot on the ladder, with 10 wins and six losses, after beating Collingwood by 18 points at Etihad Stadium this afternoon.

However, Beveridge says that his players are just taking it one week at a time.

“I just asked them whether or not they’re thinking about (finals) and none of them volunteered that they had,” Beveridge said in his post-match press conference.

“They’re giving the boring answer as well that they’re taking it one week at a time.

“And it is important that we just focus on Essendon now and try and get our 11th (win) and not look much further than that.

“Our side’s changed from week to week, and so dramatically, so you just don’t know what’s going to come your way.”
