ADELAIDE will not be focused on boosting its percentage over the coming weeks, coach Don Pyke says.

Pyke was speaking after the Crows had again drawn level on points with the Sydney Swans and also boosted their percentage with a 72-point victory over Fremantle.

They now face a showdown against cross-town rivals Port Adelaide before a tough matchup against finals-bound West Coast, while the Sydney Swans will take on North Melbourne and Richmond in their final two games.

Pyke and his players were given just 16 minutes after the final siren to board a bus for Perth Airport, during which time Pyke spoke briefly about the finals race.

"We talk each week about winning four points," Pyke said.

"That’s really what our main priority is and certainly coming over here today, the club hasn’t won twice in a season in WA, so that was great to tick that box.

"But the reality is the scoreboard will reflect how you play and how you go about playing, so if you start focusing on scoring either for or against and what percentage looks like, I think we can get distracted from the real issues and that is we want to play good footy.

"And if we play good footy, that will give us the result and if that result is four points, great. If it can give us some percentage, happy as well."

Five talking points: Fremantle v Adelaide 

The size of the victory over Fremantle is also likely to have put Adelaide’s percentage out of reach of the chasing pack, meaning the Crows probably need just one more win to secure a top-four spot.

And that could come against the struggling Port Adelaide on Saturday night after the Power were well beaten by Melbourne at Adelaide Oval.

The Crows have a six-day break before that game, which was what prompted the club’s decision to make a mad dash from Domain Stadium to catch an early flight out of Perth. Even the team song was cut short.

"We’ve got a six-day break which is why we are jumping out of here pretty quick tonight to able to get home, let the guys sleep in their bed tonight," Pyke said.

"We think that’s their best recovery and prep for next Saturday night’s game.

"… We’re not going the path of resting guys. We’ll look at what we need to do in terms of management and if there’s guys that need some management in terms of having a break, we’ll assess that. 

"But I think most of the guys, I’ve only spoken to them really briefly, but they have pulled up pretty well and we’ll get ready to go again next week."
