Aussie Rules: No Panic as Demons lose again

Melbourne coach Simon Goodwin says no-one is reaching for the panic button despite the Demons slipping to another defeat against the Sydney Swans on Saturday.

The reigning premiers are priced at 17/10 to win the 2022 grand final and had been looking in great form before suffering back-to-back defeats against Fremantle and Sydney.

Swans fight back

Goodwin’s men looked on course to bounce back to winning ways as they lead by 26 points at one stage, but the Swans came roaring back to take the win at the MCG.

The Demons coach is not panicking after the 12-point defeat but admits his side are clearly not at their best.

"We're certainly not panicking by any stretch of the imagination, but we've got to continue our purpose,” he told reporters.

“We've got to continue to find ways to get better. We've got to continue to forge ahead in our season but that's what AFL seasons are about. They're a marathon for a reason.

"You don't go through undefeated, you have got to find ways to win all the time. And as a coaching group, as a playing group we'll go away, we'll assess it, we'll look at it and we'll find ways to get better."

McDonald concerns

Meanwhile Goodwin also confirmed that Tom McDonald will need to undergo scans on the foot injury that is bothering him.
The key forward has been missing during the lean spell and Goodwin is keen to get him back asap.
