It's been a long while since Melbourne started an AFL game favourites and won it but Jack Viney believes the time is right to break another hoodoo on Saturday against St Kilda.

On Sunday, the Demons won back-to-back matches for the first time in five years. The last time they played at Etihad Stadium, Paul Roos' side snapped a 22-match run without a win at the Docklands venue.

"We understand we can't drop our guard for a second (against the Saints) ... we know our best football is up there with the best in the competition but, if we don't bring it, anyone can beat us," Viney said.
