The Brisbane Lions take on the Western Bulldogs at the Gabba on Saturday with the hosts out to put some goalscoring troubles behind them.

The Lions simply could not kick straight in a midweek defeat to Richmond Tigers, although that has been an issue for much of the season.

The Dogs' form has been up and down this season and they are struggling for consistency, but they do have a good record against the Lions.

Brisbane Form


Brisbane will have been on the training ground doing nothing but goal kicking over the last three days after a dismal display in front of goal on Tuesday. 

They scored four goals and 17 behinds against Richmond, but we should expect a huge improvement in conversion rate on Saturday.

Brisbane Team News


Dan McStay will be back from suspension while Grant Birchall, Daniel Rich and Ryan Lester will all waltz back into the side.

Brisbane Lions vs Western Bulldogs Match Up

The key match up here will be between Aaron Naughton and Harris Andrews.

Andrews is one of the smartest backmen in the league. Both are strong contested marks, but Andrews does have the Golden Fist to get the win over Naughton.

After injury, if Naughton can kick an early goal, his confidence will be sky high and it could make for an interesting match up.
