Midfielder Will Setterfield is a chance to be available to face the Power on Friday night.

The 26-year-old was a late out for last week's clash against the Saints with knee soreness, but could make his return for Gather Round after getting through main training well on Tuesday morning.

Sam Durham will sit out Friday night’s game after suffering a concussion in the Bombers’ four-point win over St Kilda.

Durham is recovering well from the head knock and at this stage, the club expects him to return next week to face the Western Bulldogs in round five.


Defender Jordan Ridley will also miss Gather Round as he continues to work towards a return from the quad injury he sustained just prior to the start of the season.

Dylan Shiel is on track for a return to play next week after progressing well through his rehab from an oblique strain, and Tex Wanganeen continues to track nicely towards a return from a navicular injury, having integrated back into main training over the last couple of weeks.

Young forward Nate Caddy lost a tooth in an accidental collision early in the Dons’ VFL game against Sandringham on Sunday but is expected to be available for selection this week.

Caddy was taken for dental surgery on the day and successfully had the tooth put back in.
