Collingwood recall trio for Swans game

Collingwood have made three changes to their team for Saturday night's round 14 AFL game against Sydney at ANZ Stadium.

The Magpies recalled centre half-forward Travis Cloke after a one-game suspension, small forward Leon Davis after an ankle problem kept him out of the loss to the Western Bulldogs, and defender Shane Wakelin, who has overcome a virus.

But ruckman Josh Fraser, who was floated as another player to return, was overlooked, as his troublesome knee did not recover as well as the Magpies would have hoped after training yesterday.

The Pies lost forwards Anthony Rocca (ankle) and Ben Reid (foot) in the loss to the Bulldogs in round 13, and dropped Alan Toovey.

Sydney recalled Peter Everitt, who has recovered from a hamstring injury, to replace the suspended Adam Goodes.

Saturday night's game is a vital one, as Sydney (fourth) will be aiming to strengthen their hold on a position in the top four, while Collingwood (seventh) will be keen to shore up their position in the top eight after two successive losses.

The Magpies won the past four games between the sides.
