The Gold Coast Suns will go into their Saturday evening clash with the ladder leading Crows minus two of their key backmen.

With Stephen May and Rory Thompson both out of the Suns side, the pressure is on Suns coach Rodney Eade (pictured) to come up with a plan to negate the on fire Adelaide forward line led by Eddie Betts.

Eade says while the structure of his back six will change, it’ll be his midfield that he’ll look to, to restrict the flow of ball into the Crows forward 50.
