Carlton take on St Kilda at Marvel Stadium in the AFL Round 5 opener on Thursday.

Both teams come into the match with two wins and two losses next to their name, but Carlton have won their last two while St Kilda have traded victories and defeats.

The Blues were lucky to hold on last week against the Dons, but the Saints really impressed, making a mockery of premiers Richmond who have been very disappointing this season.

Carlton Form & Team News

Heading into this match, Carlton have won against Geelong and Essendon by very small margins but do look more consistent than St Kilda. They could very well be sitting on four losses and at the bottom of the table, had they not held on in the wins over the Cats and Bombers.

Jack Silvagni will not be taking his spot in the side after an unfortunate injury last week, while Zac Fisher and Harry McKay look likely to find their spots once again after injuries.

St Kilda Form & Team News

The Saints have been little inconsistent this season so far, but both of their wins have been high class against the Bulldogs and Tigers.

Carlton vs St Kilda Match Up

Tim Membrey and Liam Jones looks a battle of the big men, and both senior boys of their respective sides.

Membrey can have off weeks, but when he is on, he is underrated as a forward. Jones has been one of the league's better backmen for a few seasons now, but will need to be at his best form is Membrey gets his tail up early.

The player with the most strength and endurance could be the deciding factor in this match.
