Gold Coast Suns vs Brisbane Lions Tips


The Gold Coast Suns were consigned to a disappointing 103-63 defeat at the hands of the GWS Giants in their last outing.

The Brisbane Lions secured a fine win over the Geelong Cats as they bounced back from their one-point loss to the Melbourne Demons in the game before and should take the points in this Q Clash.

Head to Head


The Lions secured their 10th win in a row over the Suns when they met in June as Brisbane ran out 107-64 winners. 

Gold Coast Suns Form  


The Gold Coast Suns have been very inconsistent this season, with wins often followed by defeats as they have failed to ever really build any momentum. 

A 103-63 loss to the Giants was a match they could have won, but they allowed the opportunity to pass them by to slip further behind the top eight. 

Now, the Suns know that even if they are perfect in their final run-in it may not be enough, with a six-point gap standing between them and a place in the finals at present.

Brisbane Lions Form 


The Brisbane Lions could have seen their incredibly tight 105-104 defeat at the hands of the Melbourne Demons snowball, but they once again proved why they are such a dangerous team.

Brisbane bounced back with a superb win over the Geelong Cats last week. This victory was their 13th in 18 matches, and it sees them sitting in third on the ladder.

With five wins in their last six, the Lions will be confident that they can defeat Gold Coast and move a step closer to September.

Brisbane Lions Team News


Will Ashcroft has ruptured his ACL, meaning he will be out for around a year.

Verdict

I am backing the Lions to win this one and to consign the Suns to their fourth defeat in their last five matches.
