Gold Coast coach Rodney Eade says he has given senior players one last chance to show their worth in Saturday's AFL home clash with Melbourne.

The Suns mentor admitted he was ready to wield the axe in the wake of their last round 120-point loss at Geelong but opted against it after a brutally honest review on Monday.

"Some players have some credits which are decreasing but it was a collective voice at the match committee after the review that it (Melbourne clash) was an opportunity to give them a chance to redeem themselves and show what they are worth."
