Collingwood has made four changes to its side ahead of Sunday's clash against traditional rivals Carlton at Victoria Park.

Stephanie Chiocci will return to the midfield whilst Erica Fowler will make a move into the backline. 

Also added into the mix is Morgan Doherty and Paige Nash.

The Pies will aim for their 11th straight victory after last Sunday's 4-point triumph over Richmond.

But Carlton will be hungry to get on the board having come off a 46-point loss to Melbourne University in round 12 which now sees them sit in second-last position on the ladder.

Named in the Blues side are AFLW stars Georgia Gee and Lauren Brazzale who will play their first games of the VFLW season. Alongside them are former Pies, Georgie Parker and Chloe Leighton.

This will also mark the first occasion former Carlton captain Bri Davey will line up against her old side.
