Essendon lit up the football world with a stirring win over Melbourne in Round 2.

In the face of predictions that the patchwork side wouldn’t win a game in 2016, the Dons took advantage of the ‘lacklustre’ Dees to snare a spirit-lifting win.

But Port Adelaide will prove a different proposition.

Stinging from a horrid performance in the Showdown, the Power will be breathing fire when they line up on Friday night.

Will they bounce back and trounce the Dons? Or can the Bombers perform another miracle?

Find out with the best commentary team in the game on 3AW Football.

TODAY’S LINE-UP from 6PM: Matthew Lloyd, Tony Shaw, Dwayne Russell, Bruce Eva, Mick Warner, Sam McClure, and Nick Butler.
