COLLINGWOOD won the final quarter, and with it a critical win, defeating Adelaide at Football Park by 26 points on Saturday.

The Magpies had not won a final quarter this year, but they produced the goods when it counted to win 10.15 (75) to 6.13 (49) in front of a sell-out crowd in Adelaide.

Collingwood's Steele Sidebottom told Grandstand it was a big boost to the team to get the win, which puts Nathan Buckley's men into the top four.

Sidebottom said the focus for Collingwood had been winning contested possessions, and that the team had struggled all night until the final quarter.

"We were huge in the last quarter, it might have just ticked us over into the positive (over Adelaide)," he said.
