Going into the match winless after three rounds the Demons travelled to Windy Hill and beat Essendon everywhere but on the scoreboard.

The injury hit Demons couldn't field a goal-to-goal line of any repute other than Gary Hardeman at centre half-back and the Bombers prospered when they went down the middle of the ground.

Melbourne charged back into the game in the last quarter but once again inaccuracy cost them victory. At least for once they had the excuse of having been pressured out of several kicks.

Best were Fowler, Coles and Flower. Wells (ankle) was replaced by Hurst in the first quarter and Woodman was replaced by Aitken in the last quarter.
