Injury Update: Who travels to Perth?

Injuries: Latest on Howe and Treloar As Collingwood prepares to fly to Perth to take on West Coast, General Manager of Football Geoff Walsh has the latest on the fitness of Jeremy Howe, Adam Treloar, Scott Pendlebury, Darcy Moore, Ben Reid and a host of other key Magpies.

Decisions on the availability of injured Magpies Jeremy Howe and Adam Treloar will wait until later in the week.

The pair trained strongly on Tuesday morning, but General Manager of Football Geoff Walsh told Collingwood Media’s Injury Update both players will continue to test their bodies later in the week.

“Pleasingly, Jeremy will be able to prove his fitness this week. He has had a couple of good sessions,” Walsh said.

“The corkie that was giving him some problems for a number of weeks has cleared up and we will be sure that Jeremy will be making himself available for selection, just by dint of his training performances.

“Adam has had some really good, strong sessions in the last seven-to-ten days.

“Without making any rash predictions, I think given he will train again later in the week, he is certainly doing everything he can to force his claims.

“His ability to be showing out at top pace has been quite evident in the last couple of sessions.”

Fortunately, captain Scott Pendlebury is a certain starter for Saturday night’s match.

Scott had an illness scare over the weekend. It was one of the silver linings in not playing on the weekend, given he quite possibly would have been unavailable,” Walsh continued.

“The good news is that he has recovered and is back training, and he will certainly be available for the game against West Coast on Saturday.”

As for talls Darcy Moore (hamstring) and Ben Reid (calf), both will be unavailable this week, but may yet feature again this season should the Magpies’ finals campaign continue deep into September.

“Both are training well and joining in. This week is probably a bridge too far, but the deeper we go into our finals campaign, the more likely it is they are going to put their hand up and be available for selection just on the basis of what they have been able to do in the last week or two, which is good news.”
