Adelaide SANFL Senior Coach Michael Godden says his side is relishing the opportunity to play in a Preliminary Final.

The Crows take on Norwood on Sunday, with the winner earning the right to battle North Adelaide in the SANFL Grand Final a week later.

Despite losing their semi-final to the Roosters, Godden said there was still plenty of positivity around, with players set to leave no stone unturned in their quest for an inaugural State League flag.

“It’s still exciting to be playing in any final,” Godden said.

“There’s a lot of buzz around the Club.

“We know it’s a privilege to be playing finals and it’s exciting.”

“We know it’s a privilege to be playing finals and it’s exciting.

Speaking to the media on Wednesday ahead of the clash with the Redlegs, Godden said there were plenty of learnings to come out of the 10-point loss to North Adelaide.

“I was a little frustrated with us and the way we played,” Godden said.

“I didn’t think we played the brand of footy or did the little things we’ve done throughout the year.

“We’ve had a good look at that, the players recognise that and they know the areas we need to improve on.”

The Crows beat Norwood in a Qualifying Final two weeks ago by 55 points but Godden expected the Redlegs to come out firing this weekend.

“When you come off a loss you always have a little edge to you and I know they had a good win on the weekend, so the scoreboard starts at zero again,” Godden said.

“Defensively they are outstanding.

“Obviously we were able to get through them on that day so I’m sure they won’t want that to happen again and I have no doubt they will improve in that area.”

Godden said the Crows had also been boosted with support from AFL players who weren’t featuring in the SANFL finals.

“Obviously most of the AFL players aren’t here but they’re still popping in and out when they can,” Godden said.

“They’ve been a great support for our program all year, the AFL boys and the AFL staff as well.

“The Club has embraced us really well and the AFL coaches are coming in most days, sharing their knowledge when they can… They just want to be there to support us.”

Adelaide takes on Norwood at Adelaide Oval on Sunday at 2.45pm.
