The Demons have now lost their last three matches and they reigning premiers are looking rather vulnerable.

Prior to the bye rounds the defending champions were unbeaten and were the unstoppable force of the competition.

But in the last three matches, the Dees have gone down to Fremantle Dockers, Sydney Swans and Collingwood.

Melbourne Demons Team News

Max Gawn will miss up to six weeks of footy, while their back-up ruckman in Majak Daw has also suffered an untimely injury.

Tom McDonald will miss up to 12 weeks and is unlikley to return this season.
