Speaking on RSN Breakfast Tuesday morning, Voss confirmed Martin and Cerra, who missed last Thursday night's victory over the Western Bulldogs after being placed in the AFL's health and safety protocols, would be available to reclaim their spots in Carlton's 22.

However, in less positive selection news for the Blues, AFL.com.au reporter Riley Beveridge has revealed key defender Oscar McDonald will be forced to watch from the sidelines this Sunday due to a back injury, potentially opening the door to a debut for off-season recruit Lewis Young.
Young, formerly of the Western Bulldogs, made his case to the selection committee after accumulating 21 disposals and taking 10 marks in the reserves' season opener last Friday.

Voss' side will be a tough one to crack, though, with the Blues sitting pretty at 2-0 for the first time since the 2012 season.
