Collingwood's Adam Treloar and Taylor Adams were their side's chief ball-winners, both with 31 touches, Ben Reid kicked four goals, and Steele Sidebottom (27 disposals) and Jack Crisp (27 possessions) were lively.

Port, despite laying just two tackles in the first quarter, shaded the visitors early and held a 22-point halftime lead in a scrappy affair.

And when the brilliant Gray slotted his second goal midway through the third quarter, the Power moved 34 points clear and were coasting.

But the plucky Pies launched an unheralded fightback, booting four goals in a seven-minute spree to sneak to within eight points.

Port responded to the crisis, scoring four of the next six goals to bank a 12th win of the season - the historical benchmark for reaching the finals.

But the Power, with games against Western Bulldogs and Gold Coast to come, are only one win ahead of a chasing pack of three clubs.
