Eels sweating on Mateo fitness

Parramatta lock Feleti Mateo is still in doubt for Saturday's must-win NRL clash with the Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium.

Mateo is yet to train this week and has been limited to rehabilitation work after suffering a knee injury in the Eels' 40-12 win over Wests Tigers on Monday night.

Parramatta are still hopeful the playmaker can recover in time for the match, which the Eels need to win to keep their slim finals hopes alive.

Winger Joel Reddy is also in doubt for the clash with a hamstring strain.

Eels coach Michael Hagan and his coaching staff will assess the pair on Friday but are likely to give both until game day to prove their fitness.

Parramatta also have a minor concern over Taulima Tautai but the winger is expected to play.
