Lions want another scalp

AFTER disposing of one South Australian team at the Gabba on Saturday night, the Brisbane Lions have their sights set on taking down the state's second team when they play Port Adelaide at AAMI Stadium this Saturday.

Lions midfielder Jack Redden said even though Port had won just one of its past 11 matches, Brisbane would not take the game lightly.

"(The Port Adelaide match) is gettable, but we're going to have to be on our A-game. We can't go into it thinking it's a B-grade game or else they'll roll us," Redden said. "It's important we finish strong and go to the line, and that's what we did on Saturday."

Coach Michael Voss said the win, which saw Brisbane come from 38 points down in the second quarter to beat Adelaide by 10, was the team's best of the season.

Redden will be one of the leading contenders for the club's best-and-fairest award to be held on September 7.

Taken with pick No.25 in the 2008 national draft, the South Australian hasn't missed a game since making his debut against Geelong in round 15, 2009.

He finished third in the award last year behind Tom Rockliff and Simon Black.
