Match Report

Carlton's chances of a top-eight finish now hang by a thread, after the Blues succumbed to a far hungrier Western Bulldogs outfit in an upset result at Docklands stadium in Saturday's twilight match. The Bulldogs won the match by 28 points, but that margin would have been much greater had it not been for the Dogs' wastefulness in front of goal.

To make matters worse for the Blues, Chris Judd strained a medial ligament in the last quarter and the injury is likely to see him miss the remainder of this season. The loss leaves Carlton two games adrift of eighth-placed Port Adelaide, who wwent down to Geelong on the same day. With just three games remaining, it will be a tall order for the Blues to make up the gap, although they do take on the Power in round 23, in a match that could ultimately decide the final place in the top eight.

The Bulldogs were the better side for the majority of the match, dominating the first quarter without making a scoreboard impact, and also the second quarter to set up a 15-point buffer at the long break. The Dogs looked like running away with it early in the third term, but Carlton fought back strongly to level the match a minute before three quarter time. However, a very late goal to Daniel Giansiracusa returned a six-point lead to the Dogs at the final change, and they then ran away with the match in the last quarter.

Jarrad Grant's remarkable renaissance continued for the Bulldogs. The former number five draft pick, who hadn't played a senior game this year until a month ago, kicked 4.3 and picked up 24 touches all of the ground in a dominant display. Ryan Griffen's dominant season continued. He picked up a game-high 34 possessions, while Adam Cooney showed shades of his best, picking up 31 touches and kicking a goal.

For the Blues, Chris Judd (22 touches and a goal) was a fine player prior to getting injured, while Brock McLean (25 disposals and a goal) and Heath Scotland (31 possessions) were also very good.

Carlton's last three weeks of the home and away season comprise matches against Richmond, Essendon and Port Adelaide, while the Bulldogs will be looking to add to their current six-win tally with matches against Adelaide and Melbourne at Docklands, and a game against Brisbane at the Gabba in between.
