Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley is likening their Friday night clash with North Melbourne to an AFL final.

The Magpies are sitting 12th while the struggling Kangaroos have plummeted to eighth on the back of five successive losses.

Buckley says he expects North Melbourne to be stinging from their run of losses while his team are playing to keep alive any chance of finals.
