Port vs Crows match preview

Crowd restrictions have been eased for Showdown 49, meaning a full capacity of fans can sing the traditional spine-tingling "Never Tear Us Apart" for Port home matches at the derby.

Rory Sloane - Factbox

Adelaide will be boosted by the return of Sloane from an eye injury (detached retina). The 31-year-old's likely inclusion is massive for the Crows, who are trying to snap a 3-match losing streak.

Just like it was documented last season in Amazon Prime doco Making Their Mark, the Crows need Sloane desperately to help their young side. They're coming off their worst performance of the season, a 67-point thumping at the hands of the Giants.

The Power are hoping to have their former skipper Travis Boak back from a thigh injury. They sorely missed the veteran warrior in their loss to the Lions last weekend. Charlie Dixon has been under the microscope after kicking just 10 goals from 7 games this season. Look for him to click into gear soon. We're predicting Port to win by 17 points.
