A trio of Port Adelaide players are in some doubt to play in Friday night's clash with Geelong, with the Power potentially facing up to five changes for Round 9.

The South Australian side are already confirmed to be without captain Connor Rozee following his reaggravated hamstring injury in the Showdown loss to Adelaide last Thursday, while defender Lachie Jones will miss up to two weeks with a hamstring issue of his own.

Mitch Georgiades is a test to play following a knee knock in the defeat to the Crows, however the club is confident the young forward will be fit for this week's trip to Kardinia Park.

Now, Port Adelaide veteran Charlie Dixon is said to be under an injury cloud after limping from the Power's Tuesday session with a suspected leg injury, per 9 News' Braden Ingram.

The Power are reportedly hopeful the 33-year-old has avoided an ankle injury, with the key forward having a history of similar ailments in recent time.

Ruckman Jordon Sweet is also said to be dealing with illness, while wingman Jase Burgoyne is managing groin tightness ahead of the club's must-win match against a fellow contender.


The Power's potential selection headaches will be alleviated to a degree with the expected return of key defender Aliir Aliir, who will look to exit concussion protocols on Wednesday.

Sweet's potential absence would open the door for young ruckman Dante Visentini, who could play his fourth AFL game this week if the Power lose their second-string ruckman at selection through illness.

Top-rated tall Ivan Soldo is still up to a month away from a return from a knee injury, while the likes of Trent McKenzie (quad) and Quinton Narkle (foot) could return in the coming weeks.

The Power could recall forward Jeremy Finlayson, who had a strong return to the field in last Thursday's SANFL loss to Adelaide after serving his three-game suspension for using a homophobic slur during his side's Gather Round game against Essendon in Round 4.

Young attacker Ollie Lord is also available for selection after overcoming an impaction fracture of the tibia and bone bruising to the knee that was sustained during the pre-season.

The Power will head to Victoria in the coming days ahead of their meeting with Geelong on Friday night at GMHBA Stadium, with the club's 23-man squad to be named at 6:20pm (AEST) on Thursday.
