The GWS Giants expect to feel the sting in Gary Ablett's tail in Saturday's clash between the AFL's two expansion clubs.

The fifth-placed Giants are hot favourites to extend their club-record, four-match winning streak and continue their pursuit of a first-time finals berth against the struggling Suns, who are heading in the other direction after four straight defeats.

Ablett has come in for criticism and admitted being below his best, but GWS coach Leon Cameron says it'd be foolish not to expect a backlash from the dual Brownlow Medallist.
