Essendon will hand debuts to three youngsters in Sunday's AFL clash with Port Adelaide.

Essendon coach Matthew Knights announced that Darcy Daniher, David Myers and promoted rookie Jarrod Atkinson would all make their senior debuts at Telstra Dome against the Power.

Daniher is the son of former Sydney and Essendon star Anthony Daniher.

The Bombers have lost their last three matches and are in the midst of an injury crisis.

Fullback Dustin Fletcher and pacy utility Jason Winderlich both have groin problems, Kyle Reimers has a foot injury, Damien Peverill has a fractured jaw and Adam Ramanauskas is ill.

To make matters worse, promising youngster Courtenay Dempsey has been diagnosed with stress fractures in his right leg.

Daniher, 18, was picked up by the Bombers under the father-son rule in the 2007 national draft.

He kicked four goals last week for Essendon's VFL affiliates Bendigo.
