Bulldogs set to welcome back key quartet

The Western Bulldogs are set to welcome back four key players for its clash with West Coast on Thursday night.

Coach Luke Beveridge said on Tuesday morning that Easton Wood (ankle), Tom Liberatore (ankle) and Jack Macrae (hamstring) will return and to give the Dogs a much needed boost ahead of the elimination final at Domain Stadium.

“(Easton Wood) is good, he’s come up, we’ve picked him and we expect him to play,” Beveridge said on Tuesday.

“It’s a credit to everyone to get ‘Libba’ and Jack Macrae to a point where they’re available.

“We’re looking a lot healthier going into this final.”

Axed forward Jake Stringer will also travel to Perth and is expected to return to the senior side after missing the final two rounds of the home and away season.
