The Footscray Bulldogs will receive a boost this Saturday, as Western Bulldogs forward Billy Gowers returns to the side.

Missing the last four weeks with an ankle injury, Gowers will return to football in time to face the Casey Demons at Marvel Stadium, before the Western Bulldogs take on Melbourne.

Sitting at third position on the VFL ladder, the Bulldogs have enjoyed a solid 2019 campaign, claiming eight wins across their twelve appearances.

The last time they met, the Footscray Bulldogs defeated Casey by 17-points at Casey Fields.

Veteran defender Dale Morris will run out for the ‘Scray for a third consecutive week, while Josh Wallis remains captain of the side while Josh Prudden returns from injury.

18 AFL listed players have been named in the side, which will reduce to four once the Western Bulldogs’ AFL side is confirmed on Friday afternoon.

The game will be broadcast on Channel 7 from 11:30am.
