Western Bulldogs can ensure the fight for the finals goes down to the last weekend by defeating Hawthorn at the Adelaide Oval on Sunday. The Hawks have lost six in a row and come up against a Dogs side with plenty to play for still.

Hawthorn Form & Team News

Hawthorn were woeful when losing to bottom side the Adelaide Crows two games ago, but did put up more of an effort when going down 80-66 to St Kilda in their last game.

The season can't end soon enough for the Hawks, who have now lost their last six games in row. Hawthorn haven't suffered seven losses in succession for more than 12 year, but can they find an effort to down the Dogs?

Ben McEvoy and Shaun Burgoyne were rested against the Saints, but should find their way back into the Hawthorn.

Western Bulldogs Form & Team News

The Bulldogs were huge in their 49-47 win over West Coast Eagles last week as they remained in the hunt for the finals. It was a must win, and took the Dogs' recent record to three wins in their last four games.

Level on points with eighth placed GWS Giants heading into the penultimate round, the Bulldogs have two winnable games against the Hawks and Fremantle Dockers to finish.

With a percentage less than 1% worse off than the Giants, a win over Hawthorn would ensure the fight for the finals goes to the wire.
