Will Gold Coast make the finals without Ablett?
It seems very unlikely at this stage.
Plain and simple they are struggling big time without their talisman and its been left on the young shoulders of Dion Prestia to carry out his role.
As good as Prestia is, and will be, he isn’t Ablett and the Suns need to implement a Plan B.
The Suns’ run home consists of some very winnable games, starting with Carlton at Etihad Stadium this weekend. Clashes with Port Adelaide, Essendon and West Coast follow, but they really need to step up and have the ability to beat top eight sides without Ablett.
