Pride rather than finals berths are at stake when North Melbourne and Fremantle Dockers meet at Metricon Stadium on Saturday. North need to win one of their remaining two games to be assured of avoiding the wooden spoon, while the Dockers can jump up a spot with a win.

North Melbourne Form & Team News


North Melbourne could still end up with the wooden spoon after Adelaide Crows' revival. They are a win above the bottom side but one more victory would ensure the Roos won't finish bottom.

The Kangaroos have won one of their last 13 games and are on a six-game losing run after going down 78-42 to ladder leaders Port Adelaide last week.

A season that started with back-to-back wins has yielded only one since and that came against the winless (at the time) Crows. Can North muster up a win and end the campaign on positive note?

Fremantle Form & Team News


The Dockers brought up win number six for the season when coming out on top in a low-scoring and tight contest 47-33 against Melbourne Demons in Cairns on Monday night.

It was a fourth win in Freo's last seven matches having also defeated Collingwood, Hawthorn and Sydney Swans. But the same period also included heavy defeats to GWS Giants and Richmond Tigers, as well as an after the siren loss to Carlton.

Fremantle have a quick five-day turnaround to contend with and may be forced into some changes from last week's effort.
