Port Adelaide hosts St Kilda at Adelaide Oval and the top ranked side can continue winnin ways in AFL Round 8 on Saturday.

An after the siren goal from Robbie Gray secured Port Adelaide the win over Carlton who did look the much more dominant side throughout the match.

After a huge scare, expect them to come out guns blazing this weekend.

St Kilda had their first ever win at the ground last week against a deflated Adelaide side.

They looked the better team from the get go, but the Power side they are coming up against is a lot stronger than what they faced last week.

Port Adelaide Form & Team News

The hero, Robbie Gray, showed great mental strength to steer his goal through the sticks after the siren to win the game for his side.

After that scare, watch out for them to come out early and to be kicking goals from the first siren.

Steven Motlop and Ryan Burton both will not take their place in the side this week after injuries last week, and Connor Rozee will undergo a test to determine whether his ankle is well enough to take his spot in the team.
