Star midfielder Josh Dunkley will be available for selection for Saturday’s clash with the Gold Coast Suns.

The 24-year-old was one of the Western Bulldogs’ most influential players in the early stages of the season, before injuring his shoulder in round six.

Dunkley has completed his rehabilitation from a shoulder reconstruction and is back in full training.

“Josh’s rehabilitation following his shoulder reconstruction has gone fantastically well,” head of sports medicine, Chris Bell, said.

“He has been back into full training for the last couple of weeks and hasn’t missed a beat.

“He will be looking to put his hand up for selection this weekend.”

Key forward Aaron Naughton will be a test to face the Suns, as he works back into training after a concussion injury.

“Aaron missed the weekend’s game due to a concussion that he suffered in round 16,” Bell said.

“He’s progressing well, but still has to work with our doctor to tick some boxes before we declare him available.”

Defender Easton Wood is on target to return over the next fortnight from an ankle injury, while Lin Jong is integrating back into high-speed running and football drills, with an eye to returning to play within the month.
