AFL: Pies hit by De Goey blow

Collingwood will be missing Jordan De Goey when they head to the west to take on Fremantle on Friday night.

The Pies are going well after winning the last three games on the spin and can be backed at 7.00 to go all the way and win another grand final.

However head coach Craig McRae is having to deal with a growing injury list that now includes De Goey, who will sit out the Optus Stadium clash.

Fremantle have won three of the last four games, and although they sit ninth on the ladder, are just one win away from the top four.

The Dockers can be backed at 8.00 to make the top four come the end of the season and a win over Collingwood would boost their chances.

. What: Fremantle v Collingwood
. Where: Optus Stadium, Perth
. When: 20:10 (AEST), Friday 24th May 2024
. How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel, Channel 7
. Odds: Fremantle 1.78, Collingwood 2.05

Dockers must improve in front of goal

Fremantle should head into the clash full of confidence following a 17-point win at St Kilda last week, but kicking goals is still proving to be an issue.

The Dockers have been one of the most inaccurate sides in the competition this season, and they will need to improve to come out on top against Collingwood.

The usually reliable Jye Amiss is out of sorts, booting just 14 goals so far this season, and will be keen to rediscover his best form.

He can be backed at 10.00 to kick the first or last goal of the game and is 1.13 to score at anytime.

Josh Treacy, who is in better form, kicking 20 goals so far, is the same price.

If Fremantle are to win the game, it is sure to be a tight one, and they are priced at 6.00 to win by 1-12 points.

Pies injury list grows

Collingwood will be missing Jordan De Goey, who joins an injury list that already includes Tom Mitchell, Jamie Elliott, Dan McStay, Jeremy Howe, Reef McInnes and Will Hoskin-Elliott.

Even so, they continue to pick up the wins and will be confident of getting the job done at Optus Stadium, despite the long trip off a six-day break.

The venue will hold no fear as they have won three out of the past four visits to Perth, including a 36-point win over the Dockers in May 2022.

Collingwood can be backed at 8.50 to win by 25-36 points on this occasion.

Lachie Schultz has yet to hit the heights expected of him since making the switch from Fremantle, and he will be keen to step up against his former club.

The forward is also making his 100th AFL appearance and is 15.00 to kick the first goal of the game, or 1.36 to score at anytime.

It is not all bad news on the injury front with Beau McCreery and Brody Mihocek both in contention to return.
