The Panthers are coming off of a comprehensive victory against West Adelaide in Round 18 and will be looking to extend their unbeaten run at Hickinbotham Oval to nine games this weekend.
With a place in the Finals secured, South can now turn their attention to securing the double-chance, with a win against fellow finals bound Sturt all but ensuring a top three finish for Brad Gotch's men - for an in-depth breakdown of the Panthers/Double Blues match up check out this week's Match Preview here.

The Panthers have elected for only minor changes at the selection table, with versatile big man Ben Haren making his return to the league side after being sidelined with a calf injury and finding his touch in the Reserves.
Likewise, much-improved midfielder Nic Schwarz has also earned the call up after racking up a massive 40 touches in the twos last weekend.
Adam Blakely's Reserves have been strengthened by the inclusion of Nathan Daniel, who will play his first game since Round 13 after overcoming a concussion.
With only three games remaining, two of them at home against fellow finals bound sides, and places in the top five still up for grabs, make sure you get out to Hickinbotham Oval this Sunday to cheer the guys on!
This weekend South will also be celebrating Tom Fields 50th game - check out a gallery of Tom's time with the Panthers here
