Fremantle Dockers host Sydney Swans at Optus Stadium on Saturday in a must-win game for both sides. Two wins outside of the top eight, the Dockers and the Swans are into win at all costs scenarios if they are to make the finals.

Fremantle Dockers Form


The Dockers will have a point to prove after losing to a controversial after-the-siren kick for Carlton's Jack Newnes last Saturday. Fremantle looked to have sealed the points, only for the umpires to hand the Blues a chance for victory, which Newnes grabbed with both hands.

At 4-7 following that four-point loss to Carlton, 14th placed Fremantle must beat the Swans if they are to arrive late into the finals picture. Having beaten Collingwood and Hawthorn at home prior to going down to the Blues, the Dockers have been in good enough form.

Sydney Swans Form


The struggling Swans pulled off the upset of Round 12 when defeating GWS Giants by 41 points in the Sydney derby, staged in the west at Optus Stadium. 

Sydney had won one of their previous seven games heading into that derby, but rediscovered their best footy to triumph 66-25 against last year's beaten Grand Finalists. Can they now repeat that performance and leapfrog the Dockers on the ladder?

The Swans are also 4-7 for the season, and like Fremantle could move to within four points of the finals if winning this game.

Verdict

Fremantle should get back to winning ways with home advantage, but don't expect it to be pretty or a high-scoring affair. The Dockers have had a number of close games this season and this one should go the same way.
