INS - Tomlinson, Jordon, Harmes, Schache, Laurie, Moodie

OUTS - D.Turner, Farris-White, Toledo, Valentine, Neocleous, Hibberd

A rollercoaster of a month for the Casey Demons has seen close losses in three successive matches.

With the margins all under 8-points it is a painful situation for the Demons to now find themselves in a finals wildcard playoff spot.

The 2023 season includes a wildcard playoff round for teams finishing 7th to 10th with the winners progressing to fill the classic finals structure.

The Casey Demons will face North Melbourne, who finished 10th, but the task will be no push over.

Plenty of re-enforcements have been bought into the side to take on the Kangaroos.

Adam Tomlinson will join the defence once again, with Ned Moodie coming back into the side for his second stint at VFL level.

James Jordon, James Harmes and Bailey Laurie will bring plenty of fire power and experience to a midfield that is already packed with talent.

The inclusion will see Captain Mitch White pushed to the half back line.

Those eagle-eyed fans may have also seen Matthew Jefferson gliding across the wing last week with the forward line being filled with class.

Jefferson will continue to float between the arcs with the return of Josh Schache this week for finals.

With so much AFL experience and knowledge coming into the side there must be some who miss out.

Despite kicking two goals and being impressive on debut, Ziggy Toledo is out and now listed an emergency.

Ryan Valentine, Kyah Farris-White and Harvey Neocleous all join Toledo on the emergency list.

Michael Hibberd comes out of the side due to concussion protocols following a nasty head knock in the third term against Brisbane.

And Daniel "Disco" Turner has been named in the Melbourne's side for his third AFL game.

It is go hard or go home his week for Casey.

The losing side will have their season ended for 2023 and the 2022 reigning premiers will be doing all they can to ensure their season doesn't end of Sunday.

The Demons are in great form despite what the form line my say.

A home finals game may just be the slight advantage that could get the Demons over the line as they eye off a finals clash with Footscray next week shall they manage to win.
