The AFL's scheduled conclusion to the 2021 home and away campaign couldn't have been scripted better, with the Demons set to face the second-placed Cats at GMHBA Stadium.
The winner is likely to earn the minor premiership crown, with Port Adelaide the only outside chance of stealing top spot.
Speaking after his side's 41-point win over the Crows, Goodwin confirmed the trio are set to feature in the must-win match at Kardinia Park.
"He (May) was really sore, didn’t recover as well as we would have liked and we were in a position we didn't need to take a risk with him," Goodwin said.
"We have got three guys who didn’t play today who will be available next week and we are building some momentum in the backend of the year and the depth of our squad in good shape.
"We know the challenge we have got next week against good opposition on their home ground and we know we have got to keep getting better to make sure our game can challenge the best in the competition."
Geelong will also be weighing up a number of selection calls, but will be thankful superstar duo Tom Hawkins and Patrick Dangerfield dodged suspensions from the MRO for separate incidents during the Cats' win over St Kilda on Saturday night.
The Power will need to defeat the Bulldogs emphatically, in what will be a third vs fourth clash to round-out the season.
Ken Hinkley's men will need Geelong to defeat the Demons, while Port are able to leapfrog the Cats' percentage with a big enough victory over the Bulldogs.
The AFL are yet to confirm the Round 23 fixture, with the last remaining finals spot up for grabs.
Essendon currently hold onto eighth place, while the Eagles, Dockers, Tigers and Saints still remain a mathematical chance to land a spot in the September action.
