West Coast Eagles look to extend Port Adelaide’s home-ground hoodoo in clash of struggling sides

West Coast captain Luke Shuey says the club isn’t looking at the win-loss record ahead of their clash with Port Adelaide on Saturday, saying the Eagles know their opponents are a much better side than their 0-5 start would indicate.

The Power are the only winless club going into round six, but Shuey said last year’s preliminary finalists could be in a very different position if close games against Brisbane (11 points), Adelaide (4) and Carlton (3) had gone their way.

“I think Port are one of those sides who could’ve easily have been 2-3 or 3-2 … sometimes a bit of bad luck and you do end up 0-5,” he said.

“Their record probably suggests they’re going more poorly than what they actually are . Their second half against Carlton was outstanding and that’s the football we’re used to seeing from Port Adelaide and what we expect on Saturday night.”
