Adelaide Crows coach Don Pyke is confident that his team will put it’s losing ways behind them this week as they prepare for the bye.
The Crows, who have lost four games in a row for the first time since Brenton Sanderson was the record holder on the club’s bench press, are looking to find some of their trademark run and gun against a non existent opponent this week.
While no team has lost to the bye since Port Adelaide in 2011, Pyke says that his team will be fully prepared for the challenge that lays ahead.
“The reality is that we’re not playing the way we would like, our contested ball is down and we need to do a bit more work in that space, and this week gives us another opportunity to improve.”
However Crows fans have signalled their displeasure at the club, with an estimated zero fans expected to attend this weeks game.
Adelaide CEO Andrew Fagan said that the club wasn’t concerned about the projected turnout.
“We’re not worried too much about those numbers. We’re expected 20 or 30 people at the Adelaide Bite game this weekend and at least a dozen streaming the E-Sports teams upcoming bout, so we’re confident our fans are still engaging.
