Gold Coast Suns receive a home game blessing on Thursday against St Kilda as they host the AFL Round 10 at Metricon Stadium.

The Suns have travelling well enough, but haven't turned it into wins. They have lost four of their last five games, with the win coming against the Sydney Swans in Round 7.

The Saints are now sitting fourth on the ladder after winning their last three matches and four of their last five. The only loss was to Fremantle Dockers by six points.

Gold Coast Suns Form


If the Suns are to end their wait for a finals debut, they need to be winning this match to stay in contention to finish in the eight.

In their last three clashes with the Saints, the match margin has been no greater than four points in favour of St Kilda, so they do seem to match up well against them.

Izak Rankine was slightly disappointing last week, so a big game is expected from the young man if the Suns are to get over the line in this match.

Gold Coast Suns vs St Kilda Match Up

A key match up here could be between Jack Steele and David Swallow.

Steele is an elite midfielder that is quite often overlooked by oppositions sides. The Saints star is smart with the ball in hand and can match it with any midfielder in the competition.

Swallow is the experience behind the Suns, and although having a quiet match this week, he will be able to go toe to toe with Steele every step of the game.

The better contested ball winner could be the deciding factor in the match.
