The Melbourne Demons also extended their own winning run to five games by beating the North Melbourne Kangaroos. This should be entertaining with the Dees to edge it.

Head to Head


The Demons won 61-44 back in June, with this their second win in a row over the Blues. In their last 10, the Blues have won once, while the Demons have won nine times. 

Carlton Blues Form 


The Carlton Blues downed the St Kilda Saints in a 73-54 win that saw their winning run extended to seven games.

As a result, their hopes of securing a top-eight spot have been strengthened.

The Blues currently sit four points clear of Geelong in ninth and have their final fate entirely in their own hands.

Ed Curnow will be used as a sub in this match with that the only change.
