DAISY Pearce will lead a strong 24-woman squad into Saturday's practice match against Collingwood at Olympic Park Oval.

The match will be the 31-year-old's first competitive game since Round 7 of the 2018 season, having sat out the 2019 season as she gave birth to twins. 

Kicking off at 10.00am, the clash will be the Demons’ final competitive hit-out before Round 1. 

Fans heading to the ground are also advised to use public transport, with limited parking available due to the Australian Open.
