Lions expect the same from the Crows

Adelaide may have changed coach since they last played Brisbane but not much else, according to Brisbane assistant coach Shane Woewodin.

The Lions are expecting the Crows to execute a similar game plan to the one they used in round 10 when the two AFL sides last met when they clash at the Gabba on Sunday

Brisbane had a resounding 40-point at AAMI Stadium in late May and Woewodin said the Lions have revisited that match for a number of reasons.

"We've looked at a few things we did well and ones which we addressed in the early parts of the game when we thought we weren't playing well," Woewodin said on Saturday.

"You go back and look at a few things previous but it's a new week, a new game."

The Crows installed former skipper Mark Bickley as caretaker coach after Neil Craig stood down following the demoralising round 18 loss to St Kilda on July 22.

Bickley tasted immediate success when the Crows defeated Port Adelaide last Sunday.

However, Woewodin said upon reviewing the Crows win over the Power there have been only superficial changes to their game plan.

"Some slight tinkering with what they did the previous time we played them and the personnel hasn't changed a lot," Woewodin said.

"They certainly played some great footy against Port last week and we have to look at our game and style and put that to use this weekend.

"It's all about attitude and mindset and what's above the shoulders though."

The match will have no bearing on the make-up of the finals but the Lions have the incentive of winning to stay out of wooden spoon territory.

With only three wins for the season, the Lions are 15th by virtue of percentage over the Gold Coast Suns who they meet next week.

Port Adelaide is last with two wins.

Brisbane will unveil its 11th debutant for the season following the inclusion of Josh Dyson who has been named on the interchange bench.

"He adds a lot of speed to the team and there' some realspunk about him," Woewodin said.
