MATTHEW Lobbe, Will Snelling are likely to return this weekend, and Matt White will undergo a fitness assessment.
Lobbe has not played since being injured against Sturt in Round 6, while White has missed almost the entirety of the season after being sidelined with a pectoral injury in the first quarter of Port’s opening round game.
Port Adelaide’s head of high performance Darren Burgess believes Lobbe and Snelling should get through their fitness tests without concern.
White is also a strong chance to be declared fit.
“We’re confident on ‘Lobbes’ and Will returning this week, but will test both of them as well as Matt White,” Burgess told portadelaidefc.com.au.
Rookie-listed Will Snelling has been in rehab for a foot injury.
Brad Ebert will also undergo an assessment after enduring lung bruising against the Hawks on Thursday.
