Essendon has made a very late change ahead of its clash with Fremantle at Etihad Stadium this afternoon.

Forward Cale Hooker has been withdrawn from the side just two minute before the bounce due to calf tightness and has been replaced by Heath Hocking.

The Dockers will go into the game unchanged.
