Geelong will welcome back Brad Close, Jack Henry and Tyson Stengle for their Sir Doug Nicholls Round game against Fremantle at Optus Stadium on Saturday.

Close returns after serving his one match suspension, whilst Henry and Stengle slot straight back into Geelong's starting side after overcoming injury.

Mitch Duncan, Jhye Clark, Ollie Henry and Oliver Dempsey will miss the Round 10 clash.

Duncan has a low grade hamstring injury which occurred at the end of Wednesday's training session. It’s on the minor side and he will be sidelined for the short term.

Clark has suffered a navicular stress reaction. He was sent for scans after he presented to the medical team with foot soreness. The Club will take a conservative approach with Jhye and he will be sidelined for the short to medium term.

Earlier in the week GM of Football Simon Lloyd confirmed that Henry would miss a couple of weeks. Dempsey has been omitted. 

The Round 10 clash with Fremantle at Optus Stadium will commence at 2.35pm AWST (4.35pm AEST).

For those tuning in from afar, the match will be televised on Fox Footy and Kayo.

Geelong will name its substitute an hour prior to the first bounce.
