The Port Adelaide Power were beaten for the second game on the bounce as they lost to the Collingwood Magpies in an 85-83 thriller. Will they bounce back in Showdown 54?

Head to Head

The Crows ran out convincing 117-86 winners back in April, with this their fourth win in their last 10 meetings, with the Power winning the other six. 

Adelaide Crows Form 

Following a tough run of defeats, the Adelaide Crows have slid down to 13th on the ladder, with their hopes of taking a place in the off-season taking a major hit. 

Defeats to the Essendon Bombers, GWS Giants and Melbourne Demons have all been pretty tight, but losing by a small margin will not get the Crows where they feel they should be. 

While they are only six points short of Geelong in eighth, they still need help to make the finals.

Port Adelaide Form 

The Port Adelaide Power saw their stunning 13-game winning run brought to an end with a heavy 122-72 loss to the Carlton Blues, and their losing run was extended as they were beaten 85-83 by leaders Collingwood. 

These two defeats have not changed the Power's position on the ladder as they still sit in second, but they are now two wins short of Collingwood at the summit.
