JASPER PITTARD will play AFL this week, after being elevated out of the Magpies’ line-up for Thursday night’s game against the Redlegs.

He’ll replace Brett Eddy in the Power team.

Eddy has been omitted from Port’s AFL line-up following last weekend’s Showdown against the Crows and will play his first Magpies game on Thursday.

Robbie Young, Louis Sharrad and Anthony Biemans are named on the extended bench, along with Jarrod Lienert and Aidyn Johnson.

Two of those will be further trimmed before Thursday’s game.

Matthew Lobbe will also miss the Redlegs clash with a minor hamstring injury along with Cameron Hewett who suffered a concussion against Glenelg.

Port Adelaide plays Norwood at 7.40pm at Coopers Stadium Norwood on Thursday 13 April.
