Eade to stick it out at the Bulldogs

Embattled Western Bulldogs coach Rodney Eade says he has no plans to quit before the end of the AFL season.

Eade was responding to a suggestion from former Bulldogs star Chris Grant that a loss to Adelaide on Friday night might prompt him to leave the Whitten Oval after nearly seven years at the helm.

Eade said he had not considered resigning and claimed there was still time for the 13th-placed Bulldogs to climb back up the ladder.

"I'm going to stick through," Eade said.

"If you get a tap on the shoulder obviously you do what's best for the club.

"But from my point of view I'm here for the long haul."

Both Eade and Adelaide coach Neil Craig are under extreme pressure with their sides managing just three wins each this year.

The Bulldogs are languishing at 13th on the ladder with the Crows one spot behind.

However Eade said that his side must down the Crows at Etihad Stadium to have any chance of remaining in the finals hunt.

Brownlow medallist Adam Cooney is set to play against Adelaide but veteran forward Barry Hall is still a week away, in need of more match fitness, according to Eade.
