ADELAIDE has defended the dumping of crowd favourite Graham Johncock as the club seeks to restructure the misfiring forward line with more marking power.

Johncock has been replaced in the side by Tom Lynch, a former Saint who stands at 190cm and gives the midfield a tall alternative target to Taylor Walker.

The decision -- which received a hostile response from supporters -- was as much about finding a player who is in form as it was finding a better balance in attack.

"It's a slight structural change,'' Bickley. ``He plays differently than perhaps Graham, who's a bit of a smaller, crumbing-type forward.

"Lynchy has got an enormous engine and he works really hard in terms of his work rate up around the ground.

"He's a marking forward so (it's) just a slight structural change but one we think is appropriate for this week.

"We're about picking a side that's capable of winning and certainly there have been some guys who aren't in great form.

"Some of them have paid the penalty and others have been lucky (not to be dropped). But at the same time, if things aren't working, you're always looking at ways of doing it better.

"The guys who have come in, one thing they all have in common is that they've been in good form in the SANFL.

"The reality is that it's more about their form and the way they go about their business. They've got really good training form and really goo playing form.''
