The Western Bulldogs have made three changes to their side for Saturday night’s preliminary final against Port Adelaide at Adelaide Oval.
Experienced ruck Stefan Martin will return, having last featured at AFL level in round 12.
Defender Zaine Cordy has been recalled, while last week’s activated medical sub, Jason Johannisen, has retained his spot in the side.
Star midfielder Marcus Bontempelli has also proved his fitness, after twisting his knee in the dying minutes of the Bulldogs’ one-point win over Brisbane.
Making way from the semi-final team is Cody Weightman (concussion), Alex Keath (hamstring tightness) and Lewis Young.
Young has been named as an emergency, alongside Anthony Scott, Mitch Wallis and Ed Richards.
One of the four will be confirmed as the medical sub one hour before the bounce on Saturday night.
The match will be broadcast live on Channel 7 and Fox Footy, with the winner to advance to the 2012 Toyota AFL Grand Final on Saturday 25 September.
