Melbourne vs St Kilda match preview

Melbourne lost a handful of players as well as their coach in the lead up to last week's game. Despite those setbacks they were able to battle their way to a tidy win in a tough contest.

St Kilda dominated large periods of their Cairns clash with Port Adelaide only to butcher the ball inside forward 50. The end result was a brutal 1 point defeat to snap a 5 game winning streak.

The Saints will be dangerous and can play quick and attacking football at their best. But the Demons constantly rise to every single challenge, and usually handle them comfortably.

The Demons should prevail in this contest to extend their unbeaten run to 15.
