According to Port Adelaide Power defender Matthew Broadbent, the club has to beat the St Kilda Saints in their upcoming clash at home this Sunday, August 2. Fans and punters can have a go on this important match with a CrownBet AFL Head to Head Bet. Broadbent feels the Power will be hard pressed to reach the finals if they can’t emerge with a victory over St Kilda. He still believes his team has what it takes to make a late-season push, but a loss on Sunday would be devastating to their playoff chances.
Broadbent recently spoke with the press and stated,
We have got another big week this week against St Kilda and that is as far as we’re looking. We obviously understand that if we don’t get that right, then there is probably nothing really at the end of the season).
Port Adelaide managed to beat the Essendon Bombers by 13 points in a high-scoring contest on July 25 to remain in 12th place on the league ladder with a record of 7-9 on the season. No matter which footy club you support, be sure to back them each week with a regular CrownBet AFL Head to Head Bet.
The Power is a pair of wins outside of the AFL’s top eight and will be facing a St Kilda squad that sits one position behind them in the standings at 6-10. The Saints also pulled off a win in round 17 as they downed the Melbourne Demons by 37 points on July 16. Power and Saints fans should back their pick for the upcoming game with a CrownBet AFL Head to Head Bet.
Port Adelaide beat the Bombers with help of former Essendon ruckman Paddy Ryder as he booted three goals in the final quarter. Bombers’ head coach James Hird called the performance by Ryder lucky, but Broadbent disagreed with him. He remarked,
I don’t know if it was luck. He was a pretty significant and important part of the match for us in that last quarter, and was certainly a key factor in the way the match went in the end. We’re lucky he’s on our team.
