Footscray will be looking to stay in touch with the top four when they face Geelong on Saturday afternoon at Victoria Whitten Oval.

The ‘Scray fell to 3-2 on the season after being overrun in the fourth quarter by Port Melbourne last Saturday, while Geelong will be looking to re-join the winner's list after dropping their last two and falling to tenth on the VFL ladder.  

Coach Steve Grace will have six AFL premiership players at his disposal and 14 AFL-listed players in total including Tristan Tweedie, playing his first game since arriving at Victoria University Whitten Oval as a Category B Rookie in December 2016.

The 190cm, 94kg key forward was restricted by injury last season but impressed with his versatility and game sense, kicking six goals in round one of the TAC Cup for the Eastern Ranges.
