Consistency is the key for Fremantle in Friday's semi-final clash with Adelaide after the Dockers indicated they would take an unchanged line-up into the sudden-death battle at AAMI Stadium.
The Dockers departed Perth today and took the same 25 players that went to Melbourne last week for the win over Geelong at the MCG.
On top of the team, Fremantle also included Zac Clarke, Dylan Roberton and Cam Sutcliffe in the touring party.
However, it was highly unlikely that coach Ross Lyon will tamper with the line-up to bring in one of the emergencies.
About the only area of concern was whether the Dockers believed they needed Clarke as the back-up to No.1 follower Aaron Sandilands rather than utility player Kepler Bradley who performed the role against the Cats.
As usual the Dockers trained a Fremantle Oval this morning before leaving town and following the session assistant coach Peter Sumich indicated the line-up had yet to be finalised.
"We’ll have a squad of 25. They have all pulled up really well," Sumich said
"We had a light session this morning, I think about 25 minutes and we will just have some recovery sessions over there."The team will be lodged with the AFL tomorrow.
