North Melbourne and Fremantle Dockers meet at Metricon Stadium on Saturday with pride rather than finals berths at stake. North need to win one of their remaining two games to be assured of avoiding the wooden spoon, while the Dockers can jump up a spot with a win.

North Melbourne Form


North Melbourne could still end up with the wooden spoon after Adelaide Crows' revival. They are a win above the bottom side but one more victory would ensure the Roos won't finish bottom.

The Kangaroos have won one of their last 13 games and are on a six-game losing run after going down 78-42 to ladder leaders Port Adelaide last week.

A season that started with back-to-back wins has yielded only one since and that came against the winless (at the time) Crows. Can North muster up a win and end the campaign on positive note?
