The Pies beat the D’s the last time the two teams met, winning by 26 points in the Queen’s Birthday game.

Still, Langdon said the Dees were well and truly prepared for the Pies in terms of planning.

“Of course, a plan has been drawn up. Without giving too much away, it’s not the same as what we did last week against Freo (Fremantle),” he said, referring to another side that beat the side earlier in the year, demolishing the side by 46 points on SEN Drive.

“Our defense is definitely our biggest strength and to be honest we pride ourselves on making Friday night games boring to watch.

“They’re all ducks, no dinner at all. They are a tough team to stop if they play fast according to their contract.

They’re a little tricky sometimes, so hopefully we can play the way they want to play and get out from behind and play the way we want to play offensively.
