The Western Bulldogs have a challenge ahead of them when they face Fremantle at Optus Stadium on Saturday night. Coming off three consecutive losses, the Doggies bring in Jackson Trengove to change up the team and their coach says the game will be won in the middle.

“That midfield battle tonight will be the telling point, we need to spread it pretty even across the ground, but those lads for us who take up the battle in there, we need them to play well,” Luke Beveridge told 6PR.

The Bulldogs goal kicking has needed work over the past few weeks and the coach says although sometimes it’s positioning, a lot of the missed opportunities were avoidable.

“We’ve had lots of gettable chances, so part of it is skill there’s no doubt, well, most of it is skill,” Beveridge admitted to Brad Hardie and Kim Hagdorn.
