West Coast defender Liam Duggan will challenge the one-week suspension he received during the Eagles' Saturday afternoon defeat to Collingwood at Optus Stadium.

Duggan, 26, was cited for a tackle made on Magpies midfielder Taylor Adams during the opening half of the loss, with Match Review Officer Michael Christian deeming that the premiership winner had made careless and high contact with Adams at medium impact.

Though Duggan learned on Sunday that he had been rubbed out of West Coast's upcoming fixture against Adelaide this coming Saturday, further conferrals will see club and player challenge the sanction at the Tribunal on Tuesday night.

This choice to exercise the right of appeal comes in the wake of Carlton's Adam Cerra successfully overturning his own ban, handed out after tackling Sydney ruckman Tom Hickey to the SCG deck during the Blues' dispiriting Round 11 defeat.

Head coach Adam Simpson will be keen to see fortune favour the Eagles in this instance having lost another experienced leader in Shannon Hurn over the weekend, with the former skipper sidelined again with a hamstring injury.

Entering their Round 12 fixture against the high-flying Pies, West Coast was forced to act without the aid of a myriad of premiership stars, including Tom Cole, Jamie Cripps, Jack Darling, Jeremy McGovern, Nic Naitanui, Liam Ryan and current captain Luke Shuey.

Simpson's side will make the trip east to face Adelaide without the services of Elijah Hewett after the young gun was levelled by a crude Jordan De Goey bump during the opening term of Saturday's clash.

De Goey faces a suspension of at least three matches for the high shot and will himself appear before the tribunal ahead of Collingwood's highly-anticipated King's Birthday match against Melbourne.
