Port Adelaide's bid for this year's minor premiership faces another test against Essendon. You can follow along with these options.

SUMMARY: Power vs Bombers is only on Fox Footy outside of SA. So unless you're already an existing Foxtel customer, your best option is to watch live on Kayo Sports. You can watch for free using this 14-day trial. This gets you access to all its unique features and 50 additional live sports.

Port Adelaide have paced this year's competition virtually all season long. At the time of writing, they are ahead of the Brisbane Lions on percentage atop the ladder, with both clubs holding 12-3 records. With a tough clash looming against Collingwood in the final round, Port can't afford to drop this match if they want to seal that top spot.

The Bombers sadly have been one of the great disappointments of 2020. Appearing strong chances of qualifying for the top eight midway through the year, Essendon have fallen away badly and are now only a mathematical chance of making the postseason.

When is Port Adelaide vs Essendon?

This is round 17 of the 2020 AFL draw, a schedule which has had to jump through all sorts of hoops due to COVID-19 but is now in sight of the finish line. The ball will be bounced to start the match at Adelaide Oval at 5:05pm AEST on Saturday 12 September.
