THE GOLD Coast Suns will be looking to snap their three game losing streak when they take on the Geelong Cats at Metricon Satdium on Saturday afternoon.
The Suns will welcome back rising star Jack Martin, who’s recovered from the shoulder injury that’s plagued him since his AFL debut in Round One.
Suns Coach Guy McKenna says the Cats play a predictable but highly effective style of football and will punish the Suns for any errors.

“They’re well drilled, they’re well coached. Sixty-one per cent of their scores come from turnovers, they set up really well for turnovers,” McKenna said.
“One of our strengths is our stoppage, so we have to bring that and maximise our efficiency from those stoppages and put some score on the board. If it becomes a stoppage versus turnover war they’ll have more opportunity to score from a turnover then we will from a stoppage.
“Our young side like to rise to a challenge and this is one of the best going around I reckon,” McKenna said.
Gold Coast defender Trent McKenzie is confident his team’s recent success at home could hold the key to upsetting the Cats.
“We’re pretty confident on our home deck that we can get the job done,” McKenzie told SUNS TV.
“Just like any other team we’re going to come out fighting and hopefully get the four points,” he added.
