The Adelaide Crows look to end current their two match losing streak, a run which has seen them fall to eight place in the ladder by replicating their 73 point, round five drubbing of the Gold Coast Suns in a Saturday night (local time) fixture at Metricon Stadium.
How 2019 is turning into Groundhog Day for the Suns, having now matched their 11 week losing streak from last year which has now planted the club at the foot of the ladder, with still just one score above 80 points for the entire season.
No doubt Suns fans would actually be happy if the Groundhog Day scenario for this week was true, as it would result in the club enjoying a 22 point victory margin with Aaron Young kicking four goals, while Lachie Weller and Will Brodie will have big possession games.
While back-to-back losses is never good reading, the calibre of those opponents (Geelong and Port Adelaide) offers Crows fans some confidence that the season still has strong hope. No doubt the next four weeks will be key with three of those upcoming matches against teams no longer in the finals hunt.
If the club can solve its up and down scoring problem, having averaged just 56.5 points in the last two defeats (with no player kicking more than two goals), the club looks primed to make a late run of a top four ranking.
Players to watch: Eddie Betts (CRO) lines up for game 311 and not since his second year of footy has he gone three weeks in a row without kicking a goal.
Touk Miller (SUN) will probably get the task of trying to keep Betts quiet. Even if he can keep the enigmatic forward to just one goal it will be a success.
Stat Attack: Gold Coast’s highest ever score against Adelaide is 86 points.
Adelaide’s lowest ever score against Gold Coast is 111.
The lowest margin of victory Adelaide have enjoyed over the Suns is 28 points.
Gold Coast are 1-5 starting a game as the home outsider in 2019.
