With both St Kilda and West Coast Eagles challenging for places in the top eight heading into the final month of the home and away season, this game couldn’t be more crucial for both sides.
Saints suffered a heartbreaking two-point defeat to Port Adelaide last week to drop to 9-9 for the season, while the Eagles’ comprehensive victory over the Brisbane Lions gave them the upper hand as they moved to 10-8.
This game, therefore, is more important for the Saints, who would slip to two games adrift of a finals spot should they be on the wrong side of the result against West Coast.
It is a run of three straight defeats that has turned the pressure on Alan Richardson’s St Kilda side and the Saints are finding scoring hard to come by of late.
They will need to be much more efficient in front of goal if they are to defeat West Coast, who have won the last eight meetings between the two sides including a 19-point victory in Round 2 earlier this year.
The Eagles are not the best travellers but those eight wins over the Saints include three in Melbourne and they might well represent the value given St Kilda’s struggles in recent weeks.
Nick Reiwoldt returns for St Kilda and Koby Stevens also comes into the side in place of Jack Lonie and Daniel McKenzie.
Sam Mitchell lines up for West Coast in the week he announced his retirement. The Eagles do lose Tom Barrass to injury with Chris Masten returning in his place.
