PORT ADELAIDE forward Todd Marshall and wingman Xavier Duursma are expected to be available for selection for the club’s Preliminary Final next week with both cleared of serious injury.
Marshall hurt his right shoulder in the first quarter of the Qualifying Final win over Geelong but returned to the field and saw out the game.
The 21-year-old will have a light week on the track but has been cleared to face either Richmond or St Kilda on Friday 16 October.
Duursma left the field after being concussed in the third term against the Cats and like Marshall will build up his training load and progress as per the AFL concussion protocol.
Forward Mitch Georgiades returned from a hamstring injury in a match simulation session on the Gold Coast on Saturday and has pulled up well, giving Port a full-strength side to choose from for the Friday night Preliminary Final.
