Australian Football League (AFL) Live Port Adelaide Power vs Western Bulldogs match will be kick off at Adelaide Oval, Adelaide,Saturday 21 june 2014 online, 13:15 AEDT and its broadcast on Fox Footy.
The Bulldogs will need to replace Adam Cooney who hurt his hamstring against Collingwood with a trio of youngsters lining up to replace him – Mitch Honeychurch, Lachie Hunter and Jake Stringer. Veteran mid Matthew Boyd is a chance to return from his hamstring complaint. Port will be sweating on the fitness of Hamish Hartlett and Jared Polec with Sam Gray, Ben Newton, Jake Neade and Brendon Ah Chee putting their hand up in recent weeks in the 2’s.
After a couple of hard fought losses, the Bulldogs got a much deserved win over Collingwood last Sunday thanks to individual brilliance from Tom Liberatore and Liam Jones. They sit 13th on the ladder with four wins from their first 12 games. Port are a game clear on top of the ladder after their second loss for the year against the Swans. They’re unbeaten in Adelaide this season too.
The Bulldogs surprised Port in Darwin last year with a hard fought nine point victory. Ryan Griffen was easily best afield with 40 disposals, nine tackles, eight inside 50’s and a goal in the low scoring affair. Will Minson had 57 hit-0uts and 13 disposals as the Bulldogs held on for a much needed win.
