The Sydney Swans could welcome back a host of important players for Friday night’s clash with Geelong at Simonds Stadium.
Jake Lloyd (hip), Gary Rohan (back spasms) and Sam Reid (groin) are all a chance to return for vital match up against the second placed Geelong.
Head of Football Tom Harley said he expects both Lloyd and Rohan to be in the frame to play.
“Jake Lloyd had some hip tightness and couldn’t recover from that fully to take his part in the game against Hawthorn,” Harley said.
“Gary Rohan was good to go before starting the warm up and getting some back, hip and hamstring spasms, which prohibited him from playing.
“Both of those players have recovered well, obviously not playing in the game helped those guys, so they will train on Wednesday and we hope they get up.”
A decision on the fitness of Reid is expected following Wednesday’s main training session.
“He had a groin injury after the Giants game and has missed the two games since,” Harley said.
“By not having the game he is clearly better than what he would have been had he played.
“Sam ran on Monday, will join in Wednesday and put his hand up for selection.”
Ruckman Callum Sinclair has been cleared of any serious damage to his ankle and will be fit to face the Cats but a decision on Sam Naismith’s fitness will be made later in the week.
Harley confirmed scans to the hamstring of captain Josh Kennedy cleared him of any serious injury and he remains in contention to play.
“He is better than what we thought but we will still assess him again on Wednesday,” Harley said.
“Josh is absolutely still in the frame to play but he will need to go through training and get through that.
“It is positive news from our end as he clearly did have some tightness on Friday night against the Hawks.”
