Port Adelaide will have a point to prove when they host Hawthorn at Adelaide Oval in AFL Round 13 on Saturday. The ladder leaders were beaten by 60 points by Geelong Cats last week, but how will they react against the Hawks?

The Hawks went down by 32 points at West Coast and have been struggling for goals. Can they find a spark and keep alive slim hopes of making the finals? 

Port Adelaide Form & Team News

The Power remain atop of the ladder, but they saw their four-point lead eradicated after a thumping at the hands of the Cats as Tom Hawkins kicked six for Geelong. 

Port reacted brilliantly when beaten by St Kilda four weeks ago, coming out and recording a 51-point victory over Melbourne Demons in their next game. The Hawks could get the same treatment if Power bounce back in the same way.

Brad Ebert could be in line for a return to the Port side after recovering from concussion.

Hawthorn Form & Team News

Hawthorn put up a fist of things before losing 81-49 to West Coast Eagles last weekend. That followed a 48-32 defeat to Fremantle Dockers.

It is now just one win in the last seven games for the Hawks, who sit 16th on the ladder. They are, however, two wins adrift of the top eight and are clinging onto faint hopes of making the finals.

What is hampering Hawthord is a mounting injury list that has seen ACL rupture victim James Sicily added to it this week and Jaeger O’Meara's participation cast into doubt due to a fractured hand. Isaac Smith could return if he passes a late test.
