Carlton's slim finals hopes can be extinguished if they failed to get the better of Sydney Swans at Metricon Stadium on Tuesday. The Blues need to win all three remaining game and hope other results go their way, while the Swans won't be playing finals footy.

Carlton Form & Team News

Back-to-back defeats have left Carlton's hopes of ending a nine-year wait to return to the finals hanging by a thread. The Blues must win all three remaining fixutures and even then that might not be enough.

Carlton went down 72-48 to Collingwood and were then on the wrong end of a 48-39 scoreline against GWS Giants. That result was a hammer blow with Carlton leading by 15 points at three-quarter time against a Giants side occupying eight spot on the ladder.

The Blues hand a debut to former basketballer Matthew Owies, who is one of four changes. Tom De Koning, David Cuningham and Lachie Plowman also come in, with Eddie Betts and Marc Pittonet given a rest. Cameron Polson and Paddy Dow are left out.

The Carlton team to play on Tuesday is below:

B: S.Docherty, J.Weitering, K.Simpson
HB: T.Williamson, L.Jones, S.Petrevski-Seton
C: S.Walsh, P.Cripps, J.Newnes
HF: D.Cuningham, J.Martin, M.Murphy
F: M.Owies, H.McKay, M.McGovern
FOLL: T.De Koning, W.Setterfield, E.Curnow
I/C: L.Plowman, L.Casboult, M.Cottrell, Z.Fisher

Sydney Form & Team News

The Swans pulled off an upset last week when defeating Melbourne Demons 67-46 in Cairns to record a fifth win of the campaign.

Sydney had caused a 66-25 surprise in the derby with GWS Giants three weeks early before putting in two underwhelming displays in defeats to Fremantle Dockers (50-19) and Port Adelaide (73-47). That inconsistency has been the story of the Swans' season.

The Swans are unchanged from last week. They remain without the likes of Callum Mills, Lance Franklin, Isaac Heeney, George Hewett and Dane Rampe.

The Sydney team to play on Tuesday is below:

B: H.Cunningham, A.Aliir, L.Melican
HB: J.Lloyd, J.Dawson, J.Thurlow
C: J.Rowbottom, L.Parker, R.Clarke
HF: N.Blakey, S.Reid, S.Wicks
F: T.Papley, T.McCartin, L.Taylor
FOLL: C.Sinclair, J.Kennedy, O.Florent
I/C: J.McInerney, W.Hayward, H.McLean, R.Fox
