The Western Bulldogs saw a two-game winning run brought to an end last week as they lost to the Collingwood Magpies. They remain in the top 8 and give their finals hopes another boost here.

Head to Head

The Swans hammered the Dogs 120-67 in their last clash in 2022, with this their fourth win in their last 10. The Dogs have won the other six. 

Sydney Swans Form 

The Swans have struggled for consistency this term, with their last three results ending in a huge win, a battling draw and a disappointing defeat to sum up their season. 

Their 88-75 loss to the Richmond Tigers, a side that now sits in 12th on the ladder, last weekend shows that the Swans have not been good enough to seriously fight for a top-eight spot, with Sydney currently sitting in 15th. 

With a spot in the post-season finals on the very brink at best, the Swans need to start winning, and they need to do it now. 

Sydney Swans Team News

The Swans will be without Jake Lloyd for this one after he picked up a concussion last week. Angus Sheldrick is also injured and Tom Hickey is omitted.

Taking their places are Joel Amartey, Corey Warner and Sam Wicks.

Western Bulldogs Form

The Western Bulldogs were not quite good enough to down the leaders in their last match as they were edged in an 89-77 loss to Collingwood.

While it was a valiant effort in defeat, the Dogs still saw their two-match winning run brought to an end.

With five wins in eight away games this term, the Dogs will fancy their chances in this one.
