Pies shake off Port

COLLINGWOOD has warmed up for Wednesday's ANZAC Day blockbuster against Essendon with a much-needed 14.13 (97) to 10.13 (73) win over Port Adelaide at Docklands.

Coming off a huge loss to Carlton and missing numerous injured players, the Magpies dominated the opening term to build a 33-point lead, with Port never able to bridge the gap.

In a bad blow for the Power, forward Robbie Gray was carried off on a stretcher with a knee injury just seconds before full time.

Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley said while the pressure the Magpies applied to the Power was much greater than they managed against the Blues, it was far from perfect.

"We're at about 60 per cent of what we're capable of in that regard," Buckley said.
