Last week’s results will add an extra edge to this encounter, with the Crows another step closer to featuring in finals football after thrashing Greater Western Sydney at Spotless Stadium in Round 16.
Hawthorn on the other hand were upset by an inconsistent North Melbourne outfit and now cannot afford to drop any point in their quest for a top two finish.
In what should be a sell-out crowd at Adelaide Oval, the task will get a lot harder for the Hawks who will miss its Norm Smith medalist Brian Lake through suspension after his infamous ‘chokehold’ on Drew Petrie.
It will mean Hawks coach Alastair Clarkson will look to Ryan Schoenmakers to shut down Adelaide key forward Taylor Walker.
