PORT ADELAIDE will face the Western Bulldogs in a Friday night blockbuster to play for a spot in the competition’s top two.

The AFL has confirmed the fixture and time, with the game to be played at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne’s Docklands.

Both clubs have agreed to strict travel arrangements and other protocols as approved by the South Australian Government. Port Adelaide will fly-in and fly-out for the match via chartered flight.

Third-placed Port Adelaide will look to extend its current five-game winning streak but will need to overcome the fourth-placed Bulldogs, a side it has beaten in four of the last six meetings.

Port has won all five games it has played at the venue in 2021.
