Following round 11, Carlton sits in 12th spot with 5 wins and 6 losses. Melbourne in 8th place sit with 6 wins and 5 losses
By seasons end, 8th place will need to have 9 wins and 8 losses (minimum) with a healthy percentage.
By that reasoning, Carlton will need to win 4 of its last six games minimum. We play 3 teams below us and 3 teams above us.
The season is delicately poised. This is compounded by the fact that we play 4 of those games within 14 days.
Here is a run down of our remaining games and the days break versus our opponent:
|Opponent||Ladder||Carlton days break||Opponent days break|
We have significant advantage over Gold Coast and Collingwood in terms of days break. Collingwood arent playing tip top footy and present a key opportunity for us to beat a team above us on the ladder.
Huge danger game against GWS after a 4 day break.
