Leg injury forces Elliot Yeo out of Eagles’ line-up

West Coast has suffered a blow ahead of the derby against the Dockers this afternoon, with Elliot Yeo out of the side.

Yeo, who has averaged 24.1 disposals so far this season, has been withdrawn after being unable to overcome a minor leg injury he sustained during the Eagles’ 32-point loss to Port Adelaide last weekend.

He has been replaced in the side by Jack Redden.

Fremantle will go into the match as selected.
