PORT Adelaide will have a youthful look as it looks to claim a second victory over Glenelg in season 2022.

The Magpies will be buoyed by the return of Orazio Fantasia from injury, but the departure of Luke Surman takes some stability out of the side.

Coach Matthew Lokan is looking forward to the challenge of tackling the Tigers again.

“Glenelg have been in the best two or three teams over the last few years, so it’s going to be a really tough challenge to be able to take them on,” he said.

“We have a few changes to our team.

“The last time we played them we went to Glenelg Oval with our backs to the wall a little bit and performed really well and got the win.

“We need to stop their threats in the forward half, (Luke) Partington is one of the best midfielders in the comp, and we’re really excited about the challenge.”

The Magpies had a nail-biting victory over Glenelg by three points earlier this season and Lokan said the side has reflected on that game to see what to expect again.

“We’ve done a lot of preparation on them this week and a lot of the stuff we’ve prepared on is about how they played against us last time and we how we can nullify their threats,” he said.

“Although we do need to worry about the way we play and what we need to do, we need to spend a bit of time on Glenelg this week.”

With plenty of changes, Lokan is delighted to welcome back Fantasia to the line-up.

“He’s put together a really good training block over the last couple of weeks,” he said.

“To have Orazio and his experience out on the ground is important for our young group, and we don’t too many high expectations on how he’ll go, but as long as he’s fit and healthy it’s really important for us.”

The match will be Port Adelaide’s last home game at Alberton Oval for season 2022 due to construction work in the Fos Williams Family Stand.

First bounce is at 2:10pm.
