Gold Coast receive a home game blessing on Thursday night against the Saints, where they will play at Metricon Stadium.

They look to be travelling okay, but have lost four of their last five games, with the win coming against the Swans in round seven.

The Saints on the other hand are now sitting fourth on the ladder after winning their last three matches and four of their last five, losing to Fremantle by six points.

Gold Coast Form & Team News

If they are waiting to have a finals debut, they need to be winning this match just to keep their head in the eight contention.

In their last three clashes with the Saints, the match margin has been no greater than four points in favour of St Kilda, so they do seem to match up well against them.

Izak Rankine was slightly disappointing last week, so a big game is expected from the young man if the Suns are to get over the line in this match.

St Kilda Form & Team News

St Kilda are the team in form at the moment and are a legitimate chance to go all the way this season if they keep up the way they have been playing.

Winning their last three matches, including a win over the top seeded Port Adelaide, they announced themselves as a team to beat this season.

Dan Butler has been great for them down forward, as has Max King out of full forward.

Gold Coast vs St Kilda Head To Head

St Kilda hold the superior record winning all of their last five clashes, but the last three have been by no greater than four points.

Gold Coast are a much more improved side than what they were last year, so that could very well be the difference between them winning and losing this match if it is down to a kick in the dying minutes.

Gold Coast vs St Kilda Match Up

A key match up here could be between Jack Steele and David Swallow.

Jack Steele is an elite midfielder that is quite often overlooked by oppositions sides. He is smart with the ball in hand and can match it with any midfielder in the competition.

David Swallow is the experience behind the Suns, and although having a quiet match this week, he will be able to go toe to toe with Steele every step of the game.

The better contested ball winner could be the deciding factor in the match.
