Melbourne Demons get the chance to jump back into the top eight they take on Fremantle Dockers at Cazaly's Stadium on Monday night. The Dees slipped up last week when going down to Sydney Swans, but can boost their finals hopes in Cairns.

Melbourne Form & Team News

The Demons have lost two of their last three games, but can still move into the finals spots if they get the better of the Dockers in Cairns.

Melbourne were very disappointing in a 67-46 defeat to the Swans having also gone down 80-52 to the Western Bulldogs. A 52-49 win over St Kilda was sandwiched in between and provide the Demons with a finals lifeline.

Dees coach Simon Goodwin has reacted to the defeat to Sydney by making seven changes. Nathan Jones (quad), Angus Brayshaw (foot) and James Harmes (hamstring) are all out injured, while Charlie Spargo, Josh Wagner, Mitch Brown and Oscar McDonald are all left out.

The inclusions are Aaron vandenBerg, Braydon Preuss, Jayden Hunt, Kysaiah Pickett, Michael Hibberd, Oskar Baker and Toby Bedford.

Fremantle Form & Team News
