Essendon VFL has named its side to face Sandringham at Trevor Barker Oval this Sunday.

The Bombers have made three changes, with Alwyn Davey Jnr, Harry Jones and Elijah Tsatas all included this week.

Dylan Shiel will miss after being a late out for last week's season-opener, having injured his adductor in the warm-up.

The midfielder was listed as a test for this weekend, but will take a cautious approach after an injury-interrupted off-season.


Jack Jedwab and Michael Kiraly will make way, each named as emergencies.

The Dons' clash with the Zebras will begin at 2:05pm AEDT this Sunday, broadcast live on 7 and available to stream via the AFL website.
