Port Adelaide can move a step closer to the minor premiership and open up a four-point gap at the top of the ladder when they host Sydney Swans at Adelaide Oval on Saturday.

Port Adelaide Form


Power bounced back from their below-par effort against Geelong Cats by defeating Hawthorn 68-58 last weekend, although it wasn't the authoratative display that would have been expected.

They remain top of the ladder on percentage and can open up a gap to the Brisbane Lions, who have a bye this weekend, in what coach Ken Hinkley will see as an extremely winnable game against the Swans.

With a midweek bye of their own followed by fixtures against North Melbourne, Essendon Bombers and Collingwood, the minor premiership is Port's to be lost.

Port Adelaide Team News


Hinkley shakes things up with five changes as Steven Motlop, Sam Mayes, Jarrod Lienert, Boyd Woodcock and Mitch Georgiades drop out and Ryan Burton, Connor Rozee, Xavier Duursma, Todd Marshall and Cameron Sutcliffe come in. Scott Lycett has been passed fit to play.

The Port Adelaide team is below:

B: R.Burton, T.Clurey, T.McKenzie
HB: H.Hartlett, T.Jonas, D.Byrne-Jones
C: X.Duursma, O.Wines, K.Amon

Sydney Swans Form


Two weeks ago, the 16th-placed Swans pulled off an upset when winning the Sydney derby against GWS Giants as they won by 66-25 in Perth for just a fourth win of the season.

But they were brought back down to earth last weekend when on the wrong side of a 50-19 scoreline against the Fremantle Dockers.

The Swans are on the home run for the season and now move on to Adelaide. They will be keen to end a year in positive fashion despite falling short of the finals once again.
