After the bye last week, Geelong will make the trip to Adelaide Oval to take on fellow top-four contender Port Adelaide on Thursday night at 7.40pm.

Ahead of the Round 13 clash, geelongcats.com.au share its opinion on which Cats could be in contention to return to the side this week.

Patrick Dangerfield

Dangerfield has been missing in action since Round 5 with a syndesmosis injury.

Captain Joel Selwood revealed at his press conference on Tuesday morning that the star Cat is in the frame to return against Port Adelaide.

“He has given himself a chance. Whether he plays this week or next week I think it is up to himself and Chris (Scott) to work through,” Selwood said.

“He has got himself in a condition now that he is definitely thereabouts to be picked.”

Mark O’Connor

Selwood also hinted that Mark O’Connor could return against the Power in either a midfield or defensive role.

“He has shown us he can do a bit of both now so we would probably play him through the midfield a little bit.

“They’ve got a lot of dangerous small forwards so he might have to play some time down there too.”

Others In Contention

Mitch Duncan (concussion), Cam Guthrie (shoulder) and Mark Blicavs (calf) all missed Geelong’s Round 11 win against Collingwood.

“They’ve got through well so far. It just depends on how well they pull up now and they will have a small run-around tomorrow.”

While Gryan Miers (fractured leg) can’t be discounted and despite no VFL game played last week Jordan Clark is likely to be in the mix to play his 10th game of the season.
