PORT ADELAIDE has made three changes – one forced – to its team for Saturday’s match against the Western Bulldogs.

Jasper Pittard suffered a calf injury at training during the week and will not make the trip to Ballarat, likewise Jarman Impey and Brendon Ah Chee who have been omitted from Port’s line-up.

They will be replaced by Riley Bonner, the returning Sam Powell-Pepper and debutant key position forward Todd Marshall.

Marshall booted 5.1 in a quarter against West Adelaide in the SANFL last week, earning him an AFL appearance against the Bulldogs.

Marshall was the Power’s first pick - at No. 16 - in the most recent national draft, and joins fellow selections Sam Powell-Pepper and Joe Atley in debuting this year.

The 18-year-old hails from Deniliquin in New South Wales, and played for the Murray Bushrangers prior to arriving at Alberton.

Ah Chee and Impey will play for the Magpies against Norwood on Sunday afternoon, and will be joined by the returning Jack Hombsch who has recovered from a hip injury.

Tom Gray and Louis Sharrad are included in the extended team.
