Port Adelaide are plotting a speed-based midfield raid on Fremantle in their bid to pinch a top-two AFL finish.
The Power travel to Perth for Sunday’s fixture in comfort, unable to slide outside the top four entering the finals.
But half-back Kane Farrell says a top-two berth is now on the agenda.
“You always play to get as high as you can on the ladder,” he said.
“So if we can get up the top two, it’s what we have set out to do – but top four is also a good achievement.”
Third-placed Port remain wary of the Dockers as they close out a disappointing season: 14th spot with nine wins.
“They’re playing some good footy lately,” Farrell said.
“For them, they probably want to slow down our game style a bit.
“So for us, to still be brave, try to take the game on and use our speed that we have got through the midfield.”
Farrell, a 67-gamer, joined teammates Dylan Williams and Jase Burgoyne in announcing contract extensions this week.
The deals follow Ken Hinkley’s fresh two-year deal to remain as coach until the end of the 2025 season.
Farrell, 24, said Hinkley’s re-signing was welcome news among a young playing group growing increasingly close.
“Obviously how young we are, we have all got a lot to build on still,” he said.
“And just to have Ken there in the background, helping us, driving us forwards which he has done for the five or six years I have been here.
“There is a lot of young exciting guys coming through the club … it’s a good time at the club at the moment with the young core we have got.”
Farrell is a key component with the incisive left-footer shifted with success to defence – after a knee reconstruction in 2021, he has played 18 games this season.
“It’s what you set out to do when you first get drafted, you want to play AFL footy and to play consistently,” he said.
