Anthony Morabito's horror run with luck has continued, with tonsillitis ruling him out of a western derby return.

Expectation that Morabito could be named in Fremantle's 25-man squad for the Sunday blockbuster at Patersons Stadium and play his first game in three years, coming off three knee reconstructions, had built earlier this week.

However, the 23-year-old was not included in the expanded side when it was released yesterday and Dockers coach Ross Lyon confirmed the midfielder was sidelined again, this time due to the dental condition.

"Anthony Morabito has come down with tonsillitis and won't train today," Lyon said this morning. "He'll play AFL football this year."
