Collingwood could be bolstered by the inclusion of Jordan De Goey for this weekend's clash against Port Adelaide as the Pies aim for an incredible tenth consecutive win.

De Goey hasn't played since Round 16's win over Gold Coast after straining his quad at training. The 26-year-old was a chance to return for Collingwood's nail-biter against the Bombers, but wasn't named as an inclusion as the Pies take a cautious approach with the out-of-contract gun, now set to run out on Saturday afternoon at the MCG.

Brayden Maynard is less likely to lace up the boots, facing a test to be right to take on the Power. The defender was substituted out of Round 19's win over Essendon with a shoulder injury and isn't expected to train with the team on Wednesday, leaving a test for his availability to later in the week.

Ruckman Brodie Grundy is set to play in the VFL this weekend, with the Magpies facing Southport on Saturday morning. The 28-year-old hasn't featured for the Pies since Round 6's ANZAC Day clash in which he suffered a PCL injury.

He could be recalled in the chance that American Pie misses out due to a virus, with the Collingwood tall currently absent from training throughout the middle of this week.

Cox will be given until the 11th hour to get over the bug, with senior coach Craig McRae having Grundy on stadby if needed.

Meanwhile, good news is aplenty at Ikon Park ahead of Carlton's match against Adelaide on Saturday night with both Sam Walsh and Jacob Weitering set to play despite respective injury concerns.

Walsh suffered a rolled ankle during Round 19, while Weitering dealt with a corked thigh, but the club has confirmed that both are expected to train and be available for selection.

George Hewett however, will not make the trip to Adelaide as he continues to manage a back issue. The 26-year-old has managed 15 games so far in 2022, in what is his first season for the club after six seasons at Sydney.

Collingwood will be hoping for a win to secure their spot in the top four, with the Blues sitting just one game behind them in seventh position.
