West Perth look set to regain key players Matt Guadagnin, Chris Keunen and Andrew Strijk, with former Fremantle squad member Jay van Berlo also a chance to return, for tomorrow's game against Swan Districts at Steel Blue Oval tomorrow.
The Falcons had a bye in the last round, after injuries ruled Keunen (shoulder), Strijk (shoulder), Guadagnin (back) and van Berlo (knee) out of the team which lost to East Fremantle by 73 points at Arena Joondalup two weeks ago.
Keunen and Strijk pulled up sore after the club's 60-point win over Perth in Moora on August 10, while Guadagnin injured himself at his York farm the day before the Sharks match.
Football manager Jamie Ball confirmed all four were likely to be included in West Perth's 25 to clash with Swans.
Van Berlo is expected to line-up with the reserves if he misses out on the league side.
Ball said ruckman Keunen had been held out of the East Fremantle game mostly as a precaution and the 29-year-old would have played had the game been a final.
"Chris was back pretty much full training at the end of last week and has trained all of this week as well, so we expect him to come straight back," Ball said yesterday.
"If we had to play a final the week of the Sharks match, it would have been touch and go but we probably would have got him up for it."
Keunen has played 127 games since making his league debut in 2006 and is averaging 13 possessions, four marks and 30 hit-outs a game in 2013.
Ball said Keunen remained an important part of the Falcons' bid to break a 10-year premiership drought, their last grand final win coming in 2003 against Subiaco.
"The amount of work Chris has done this year has been phenomenal," he said. "For him to come back in really gives us that extra string, not only with his ruck work but the around-the-ground work that he does, almost being a fifth midfielder."
Strijk aggravated an existing injury in Moora and was rested from the East Fremantle game to help get through the rest of the season.
"We are confident that Andrew will be fine," Ball said.
"It hasn't really affected him and no one would have really known prior to the Moora game anyway that he was playing with any sort of discomfort."
Ball said experienced mid- fielder Guadagnin would be fit for tomorrow's game.
"Matty has been back training fully so should be fine," he said.
"It was just one of those things the day before the game and he didn't feel quite right on the Saturday so we went with the safe option."
Ball said Strijk and Guadagnin's were important players for West Perth.
"Andrew just with his ball use, delivery and experience is important and helps to organise our back line," Ball said.
"Matty in the midfield is a senior player with more than 150 games who really helps the likes of (Aaron) Black and (Shane) Nelson."
Van Berlo, who notched 32 games for the Dockers between 2009 and 2012, has not played for West Perth since their 30-point round-19 win over East Perth at Arena Joondalup on July 27.
The hard-running midfielder has averaged 22 possessions, four marks and four tackles a game in 16 matches for the Falcons in 2013."Chris (Keunen) was back pretty much full training at the end of last week ...""West Perth football manager *Jamie Ball *
