Fremantle defender Paul Duffield is confident his teammates can replicate the pressure which strangled Sydney in the preliminary final when they take on Hawthorn in the season decider.
The Dockers eclipsed the reigning premiers last Saturday night with relentless pressure, romping into the club's first grand final in its 19-year history.
Duffield, who was particularly effective off half-back with 29 disposals and a second-quarter goal, said he was proud of the efforts of the whole team.
"It was a fierce contest all day," he said. "We fought very hard for a long time and we obviously go into our first grand final.
"It is amazing. (Coach) Ross (Lyon) said after the game he was super proud of the group and their effort but we still have some things to improve on.
"Hawthorn are a fantastic side, so we are going to have to be at our very best this week."
Duffield said the hunger at Fremantle for success was palpable.
"There is a fierce desire amongst the group just to be involved," he said.
"We just focus on everybody giving extraordinary effort for a long period of time and if we do that for long enough then we think that the result will go our way.
"It was a fantastic effort by a lot of people to give us an opportunity and that is all it is, it is just an opportunity."
The 28-year-old said it was a special feeling after enduring some lean years at the club.
"At the end of the day it's why we play AFL football, to get on the big stage and try and win a premiership," Duffield said.
"It is just something that I am really grateful to be able to take part in and I am just looking forward to really enjoying the week and then the challenge of the game."
Duffield acknowledged the Hawks were tough opponents, but believed Fremantle's game plan would work in the grand final at the MCG on Saturday.
"We have been a very high pressure side all year and that's been at anywhere, any time, at all grounds around Australia," he said.
Duffield credited Lyon with reigniting his career.
"Ross is just really good at getting players to understand what role they play in the side," he said.
"I had a poor year in 2011 and I probably wasn't quite sure where my footy was going and he really rejuvenated me and gave me a bit of belief in myself again."
