Get them in: Melbourne will make at least one change with co-captain Jack Viney (shoulder) already ruled out. Declan Keilty has been around the mark for several weeks and two goals in the VFL again has him well in the frame again. Others that will be considered include Oscar McDonald, Harry Petty, Josh Wagner, Corey Wagner, Braydon Preuss, Tom Sparrow and Corey Maynard.

Under the pump: The delivery inside 50 has been atrocious, but Sam Weideman is badly out of form and could benefit from a stint in the VFL to rebuild his confidence. Jay Lockhart and Jeff Garlett also had quiet games against Richmond.

Medical room: Viney will be sidelined for two weeks with a shoulder injury, while Preuss (shoulder) will have to pass a fitness test to be cleared to play. Alex Neal-Bullen (corked hamstring) may also be in a bit of doubt.

Verdict: Oscar McDonald for Viney, Sparrow for Lockhart and Keilty for Weideman. Tom McDonald to play forward.
