Sitting in seventh place heading into the penultimate weekend of the home and away season, Melbourne Demons know a win over the Brisbane Lions will leave fate in their own hands.
Victory at the MCG on Sunday would not only keep the chasing pack at bay for another week, it will also mean the Demons would go into next weekend’s clash with Collingwood knowing they need no outside help to seal a top 8 berth.
The Dees came through one crunch game last weekend when defeating finals rivals St Kilda and they start as clear favourites to defeat the Lions.
Brisbane have something to play for themselves having posted improved efforts over the last month, and they can now move off bottom spot with a victory over the Demons.
They won the Q-Clash with the Gold Coast Suns last weekend to join Carlton on five wins for the campaign and the Lions could yet pull off the unlikely and avoid the wooden spoon.
In what was previously a wooden spoon clash between the sides, the added important and home advantage should just see the Dees across the line but it won’t be by much against this improving Lions side.
Jesse Hogan returns for Melbourne Demons and Billy Stretch is also named. Jack Viney misses out with a foot injury and Sam Weideman is left out.
Just one change for the Brisbane Lions sees Alex Witherden come in for Cedric Cox.
