After the heartbreaking two point loss to the Brisbane Lions yesterday, the Casey Demons now find themselves in a do or die Wildcard Round clash.
Finishing in seventh place, the Demons enter the new format alongside Collingwood, Richmond and North Melbourne.
Casey will play North Melbourne on Sunday 27 August at 2:45pm at Casey Fields.
It is a win at all costs fixture with the losing team having their season end.
The winning side will continue into the traditional finals bracket where sixth place Footscray are waiting.
The Demons have lost their last three games by one, eight and two points.
So while the form line doesn't look appealing heading into a finals campaign, the on field performance hasn't dipped.
A shot on goal not hitting the post, a more fortunate bounce or slightly more time on the clock could have changed the outcome of the season.
The 2022 premiers will be eager to leave nothing out on the field on Sunday and will be looking to ensure the hunt to win back-to-back VFL flags is still possible.
Make sure you get down to Casey Fields and cheer on the Casey Demons as they fight to keep their season alive.
