Essendon Bombers host the GWS Giants at Metricon Stadium on Friday, a do or die match for both sides in AFL Round 10.

Both side have five wins to their name and sit in an awkward position on the ladder head into the business end of the season. Both could very easily slide out of the top eight if they are to lose this game.

GWS come into this match in the better form, winning their last two games and looking for three on the trot. Essendon were beaten by the Brisbane Lions last week.

Essendon Bombers Form


The Bombers were extremely poor against the Lions last week where they were simply outclassed and lacked a power forward who can take a grab.

They desperately need Fantasia and Stringer back in the side, the latter especially being that big target down forward. Stringer's presence allows the likes of Tipungwuti to get the crumb rather than lead as a tall.

Essendon Bombers vs GWS Giants Match Up

The key match up heading into this fixture could be between Jeremy Cameron and Michael Hurley.

Cameron is one of the hardest working forwards in the competition, but will meet his match with one of the best defenders on him in Hurley.

Cameron is probably not recognised for the footy he is playing at the moment, working hard and creating contests all over the ground, almost playing a wingman like role.

Hurley lacks no experience in big games and will likely keep his line across half back and look to chop off the ball to Cameron.
