Injuries have restricted the veteran midfielder to just 14 of a possible 48 games since crossing from North Melbourne and he is under pressure to produce in the last year of his contract. The classy runner last year made just four appearances, the last of which was in the Queen’s Birthday win over Melbourne when he suffered a season-ending foot injury. It will be a bonus for the Pies if Wells can finally enjoy an injury-free run, given they usually win when he plays.
