Lessons learned from a nail-biting losing streak have been leveraged by Carlton

Michael Voss insists Carlton will be ready to roll under pressure if their round two AFL clash with Geelong goes down to the wire.

The Blues have had late success in each of their last three games, all of which have been enthusiastic.

But Voss has turned key moments from the season-opening draw with Richmond, as well as losses to Melbourne and Collingwood late last season that cost the Blues a finals spot, into learning opportunities.

The 47-year-old believes he is putting Carlton in good stead for their meeting with the Cats at the MCG on Thursday night.

“When you go through those moments, the unfortunate thing is if you don’t finish it (it’s) obviously there will be a fair focus on it,” said second-year Blues coach Voss.

“But the fact that we’re in these games and we’re in these games puts us in a better place to be able to handle it well in the future.

“The boys are really clear about what it looks like for us, so we have to go out and do it if the moment calls for it.”

Fosse would not publicly explain his review of the dying stages of the lot with Richmond, which he admitted were not pretty.

He said the Blues system had held up well but that licensed individuals had made costly decisions they wished to restore.

“I wouldn’t say (it was) good,” Voss said.

“We had a great discussion[about]other moments for us to work on our game and there are some really important lessons from that.”

Both sides lost key players to injury in the Thursday night fixture with Carlton midfielder George Hewitt (hand) and Geelong defender Tom Stewart (knee).

The Blues and Cats are chasing their first win of the season after Chris Scott’s side opened their premiership defense with a shock defeat to Collingwood.

Off-season recruit Jack Bowes will play his first game for Geelong, while 2021 draftee Cooper White will make his debut.
