The Western Bulldogs are set to play their fourth debutant of the season this week as Luke Beveridge calls up Brad Lynch from the VFL.

Lynch has spent three seasons at Whitten Oval, and after suffering with injury he's been able to impress in the past few weeks.

He joins Aaron Naughton, Ed Richards and Billy Gowers as first-gamers for the club this year.

Beveridge looks to shake-up his struggling side and hopes Lynch can come in and make a difference for the team as a speedy defender of half-back.

He collected 19 disposals and took six marks in Footscray’s win over North Melbourne last weekend.

Lynch, who's from Swan Districts originally was picked up by the Bulldogs in the 2015 NAB Rookie Draft with their first pick.

The Bulldogs look ahead to Friday night as they take on the Cats at Etihad Stadium; a Cats team that has lost it's past seven games coming off a bye.
