Betta Teams: Round 17 - South Adelaide vs Sturt

No Second Chance Against Double Blues

South Adelaide head to Unley in Round 17 of the SANFL Macca's League for a critical clash with Sturt on Saturday afternoon. 

After their stunning 83-point demolition of Woodville-West Torrens in Round 16, the Panthers are now just a game back of fifth-placed Glenelg and hold a better percentage than their coastal rivals.

A win against the Double Blues is vital to keeping South's finals hopes alive.

For the first time in some weeks the Panthers could name an unchanged lineup, with South's selection committee opting for stability after their big win over the Eagles last weekend and naming no omissions.

However, Garry Hocking could be tempted to recall midfield bull Brede Seccull, who has been named on an extended interchange after recovering from a finger ailment that has kept the 2016 joint Knuckey Cup winner on the sidelines since Round 8.

Also coming into the 23 is young midfielder Alex Moyle, who would be inline for his second game if he earns a recall.

Meanwhile, reliable big man Daniel Bass is set to make his 100th appearance for the Panthers after being named to lead South's ruck division, while midfielder Nic Schwarz will notch his 50th SANFL Macca's League game.

The Reserves also face a must-win clash this weekend. Currently sitting sixth on the ladder, the Panthers are half a game back from fourth-placed Sturt and need a win to keep their season alive.

However, they have received a significant injection of League experience, with key forward Sam Overall, utility Tyson Brown and defender Jordan Taylor all earning selection after stints on the sidelines.

Overall has not played since injuring his knee in the Round 12 Mayor's Cup victory over Central District, while Brown has struggled with a back complaint since his return to League action against West Adelaide and Tayor suffered a concussion in the Reserves against Port Adelaide a fortnight ago.

Also returning to the fold is young key backman Ben Millman (finger) and midfielder Jake Anderson (concussion).

Meanwhile, the Club's top-of-the-table Under-18s will simultaneously be in action at Hickinbotham Oval from 11:25am against the Double Blues.
