It may be Sydney's home game but ANZ Stadium holds no fears for Collingwood, who have won four of their six games there.
The Pies are also on a six-game winning streak against the Swans and will surge into fourth spot should they account for Sydney. But Paul Roos' men are proven performers when the chips are down, and Sydney bad boy Barry Hall will be desperate to make amends for his round 11 brain fade that cost his team victory against Hawthorn. The Pies boast plenty of match-winners, with Leon Davis and Dane Swan able to wreak havoc in the middle. But it is Collingwood's small forwards that could pose the greatest threat for Sydney. Alan Didak is capable of ripping a game wide open, while Brad Dick has popped up for eight goals in his past two outings.
