The Gold Coast Suns have never defeated the Sydney Swans.


That makes it very ominous for the visitors as they are fighting for whatever slim chance of making the finals they have this weekend.


For the Sydney Swans they are on the verge of an extraordinary season.


After losing the first six games of the season, finals looked out of the question and they appeared a realistic chance of finishing last.


The Swans got out to $101 for the premiership and few gave them a chance of making the finals again, but since that point in time the Swans have won four straight games and seven of their past eight.

The only loss in that time was a shock loss to Hawthorn but the Swans are on the march and will be too good for perennial flops Gold Coast.


Gold Coast has never defeated Sydney in seven attempts and there have been some heavy defeats in that period of time.


When these sides last clashed the Gold Coast was held to just to 41 points and we anticipate they will against struggle to hit the scoreboard.


The Swans shared the love in that 38-point victory with three of their midfielders racking up 33 or more disposals including Dan Hannebery with 36 and Josh Kennedy with 33.


Look for those two to find plenty of the footy again in this fixture and both look a good bet to collect 30 or more.


Gold Coast has been such a let down again this season and if they are going to play finals footy for the first time they need to win this game. The Suns held off North Melbourne by 19 points last week with Gary Ablett collecting 37 disposals.


The Brownlow Medal is now shaping as a two-horse races between Patrick Dangerfield and Dustin Martin, but we are still confident the two-time winner Gary Ablett will poll well and looks terrific value at $26 (@ Sportsbet).


In what is a big game for both sides the Swans will have too much class.



Josh Kennedy had 33 disposals when these sides last clashed and looks a good bet to get the most.
