Fremantle skipper Nat Fyfe is likely to return from a hamstring strain this weekend, according to coach Justin Longmuir.

The two-time Brownlow medallist suffered the injury during his side's Round 4 clash with Gold Coast and has been sidelined for one game.

However, Longmuir is confident that the star midfielder will make a remarkable 14-day recovery for this Saturday's clash with St Kilda.

“He’s a good chance to play. He’s come along really well and I think that hamstring injury wasn’t as bad as some hamstring injuries can be," Longmuir told SEN's Whateley.

“He’s progressing really well and is keen to put his hand up this week.

“Clearly he’ll have to get through our training sessions, but we expect him to play at this stage.”

The Dockers face the Saints at Metricon Stadium on Saturday at 12.35pm (AEST).
