St Kilda made it back-to-back victories when they powered to a 33-point win over Richmond last Sunday, kicking 10 of the last 11 goals to turn the contest on its head.

Hawthorn vs St Kilda match preview

Hawthorn's ability to fight back from 41 points down last week to take the lead during the final quarter would give Hawks fans a lot of reason for optimism.

Their defensive unit and young midfield brigade look like carrying the side a long way in the future.

St Kilda also had a fightback of their own, turning a 25-point third-quarter deficit into a 33-point win on the back of a rampaging run.

Max King with 4 last-quarter goals and Mitch Lewis who kicked 5 the week before might hold the key in what should be a very tight contest.

Perhaps the Saints' midfield experience might prove the difference in an important game for both sides.
