Port Adelaide could lose yet another key player for tonight's game against the Bombers with reports suggesting that Charlie Dixon could miss with a knee injury.

Superfooty (Herald Sun) is reporting that Dixon has had a flare up of his knee injury that he suffered in the pre-season, but Port Adelaide captain Travis Boak is confident the big forward is right to play.

Should Dixon miss out tonight, he will join a host of Port Adelaide's big names missing with Angus Monfries, Paddy Ryder (WADA Suspension), Hamish Hartlett (Hamstring), Alipate Carlile (Wrist), Matt White (Pectoral Muscle), Chad Wingard (Hamstring) and Jay Schulz (Back) already missing from tonight's match against the Bombers.

Essendon's recent record against the Power is very good, winning five of the last six matches and four of their five matches in Adelaide against either the Power or the Crows.
