Melbourne Football Club have reason to celebrate this weekend after storming into the AFL’s Top 8. The Dees are sitting in 8th position tonight with a match to play this coming Friday night at Etihad Stadium against the Western Bulldogs. The Demons put on a ruthless display of football to beat Richmond by 27 points.
Both the Dees and Dogs are coming off wins, although the Bulldogs were not too convincing against the Gold Coast Suns at the weekend. Melbourne will be out to chalk up a third consecutive win as the feel around the club starts to pick up after a mediocre start to season 2011. A couple more wins for the Demons would see them push towards the middle of the top 8 and almost certainly secure a finals spot – the dream of playing in September remains well and truly alive.
