Dual premiership stars Andrew Foster and Jesse Laurie are expected to boost Claremont for tomorrow's match against East Fremantle at East Fremantle Oval.
Midfielder Foster and defender Laurie played in the past two grand finals when Claremont beat Subiaco by 56 points in 2011 and the Sharks by 26 last year.
Laurie had work commitments while Foster was a late withdrawal with a lower back injury on the morning of the game when the Tigers defeated Perth by 15 points at Brownes Stadium last Saturday.
Tom Taylor, who missed the Demons match due to groin soreness, is also expected to return for the game against the Sharks.
Claremont football manager Dean Horsington said Foster and Laurie would be valuable inclusions in a match East Fremantle must win to have any chance of qualifying for Sunday week's first semifinal.
"We know it's going to be a tough game," Horsington said.
"A lot of it just for us is about building momentum going into the finals and getting the right mix within our team.
"Those two blokes definitely help with that because they are in our best 22."
Horsington said Claremont players would have plenty of incentive to win tomorrow despite having qualified for the second semifinal against West Perth, also on Sunday week, regardless of the result.
"I don't think our players think like that, seeing it as a game that's not important," he said.
"They just want to make sure they are in good order come second semifinal day.
"I think they will treat it as any other week. They know there are still (finals) spots on the line and roles to play, so they will be motivated this week like any other.
"Our guys are natural competitors, so they aren't going to be taking the game lightly. I'm sure Easts aren't either, so it should be a pretty good game."
Claremont captain Andrew Browne will be given another week off to recover from a shoulder injury ahead of the second semifinal at Claremont Oval.
Browne dislocated his shoulder when the Tigers crushed Swan Districts by 59 points at Claremont Oval last Sunday week, heading to the rooms after the dislocation in the first quarter and forced off again just minutes after he returned in the second term.
Horsington said no risks would be taken with their inspirational skipper, who played in the 2011 premiership but missed last year's season decider with a hamstring injury."We are just making sure Andrew has completed his rehab properly and been ticked off properly by the medical staff," Horsington said.
