Western Bulldogs vs Carlton Both the Western BullDogs and the Blues are looking to make it three in a row with the Blues playing inspired footy under interim coach John Barker.

Bryce Gibbs will miss a second match due to suspension. For the Bulldogs, Stewart Crameri, Nathan Hrovat, Caleb Daniel and Jack Redpath are pushing for a game. Tom Liberatore and Clay Smith (knee injuries) are both missing from their best 22.

The Wolf had a shocker in round 13 and is happy to make the Bulldogs his lock of the week. The Blues have been super impressive since sacking Mick Malthouse and should have beaten Gold Coast by more last weekend but should get a reality check against the Dogs. It will be a battle of endeavour with Carlton really ramping up their pressure around the ball in the last month but the Dogs should have enough ammunition to withstand it and fire bullets of their own. Emerging stars Jake Stringer, Marcus Bontempelli, Jack Macrae and Tom Boyd should spur the Dogs onto their eighth win of the year.
