Magpies expect Carlton to bounce back

Collingwood are expecting Carlton to bounce back hard after their demoralising loss last round when the traditional AFL rivals meet at the MCG on Sunday.

While the Magpies have won eight of their past 10 games to be flying high, the Blues went goalless in the first half against Fremantle while allowing them to kick 12 goals.

But Buckley said they wouldn't "fall" for Carlton's last performance and said the Blues had shown in other games they were a better team than that.
