AFL.com.au previews Sunday's clash with the Blues.

SUMMARY
David Mundy breaking Richmond hearts again will be remembered as one of the highlights of the season, and his after-the-siren goal has kept Fremantle's push towards the top eight on track ahead of Sunday's clash with Carlton. The never-say-die Freo Dockers have turned their season around with five wins from the past six games – three by less than a straight kick. It promises to be another tight affair against the Blues, with Freo's attack ranked 16th and Carlton’s 18th. Brendon Bolton's outfit have shown they are no pushovers, though, upsetting Sydney and Collingwood and taking it up to St Kilda last round.

WHERE AND WHEN: Domain Stadium, Sunday 21 May, 2.40pm WST

Head to head

THE SIX POINTS
1. Fremantle and Carlton will meet for the 31st time and the Freo Dockers hold the advantage winning 17 games to 13. Carlton snapped a three-game losing streak to Freo with an upset four-point victory at Domain Stadium in 2016.

2. The teams have played 18 times at Domain Stadium, with 11 wins to seven in Fremantle’s favour.

3. One of the reasons for Fremantle’s resurgence has been the tightening of their defence. Freo conceded 260 points in the opening two rounds, and 81 per game since to rank 10th overall. The Blues rank ninth, conceding an average of 90 points. 

4. Fremantle could gain an advantage at clearances. Freo average 38 per game (AFL No.8) compared to the Carlton’s 32.8 per match. 

5. No team has kicked the ball more this season than Carlton (averaging 229 per game), but the Blues are ranked 18th for handballs. Fremantle is 13th for kicks per game and 8th for handballs. 

6. Carlton young gun Patrick Cripps continues to surge up the Schick AFL Player Ratings. The 22-year-old is averaging 26 disposals and has climbed up 13 spots to 31st overall since the end of last season.
