Essendon VFL will welcome back three key players when the side meets Collingwood on Sunday.

David Myers, Ben Howlett and Mason Redman have been named in the squad and are set to make their first VFL appearance of the season after overcoming injury.

For Myers the match marks his first competitive hit out in more than 18 months.

The long-kicking midfielder damaged a finger tendon during the pre-season.

The Bombers will be looking to rebound after a narrow loss to Sandringham last weekend.
