Geelong Cats can seal a top four spot and a double chance in the finals with victory over Sydney Swans in their final game of the regular season at Metricon Stadium on Sunday. A win assures the Cats of heading into the finals as one of the top four seeds.

Sydney Form & Team News

Sydney Swans have lost six of their last eight games including the last two. They suffered a heartbreaking 57-52 loss to Carlton before being outplayed by Brisbane Lions 73-41.

It has been a season to forget for the Swans and one that can't finish soon enough. Do Sydney have one more win left in them?

Callum Sinclair and James Rowbottom were both rested last week but should come back into the Swans side.

Geelong Form & Team News

The Cats lost a big game last week with a pretty flat display as they went down 57-31 to top four rivals Richmond Tigers.

That result leaves Geelong needing to win their final game against the Swans to wrap up a top four spot. Having won their previous six in a row prior to facing the Tigers, the Cats should be up to the task of defeating Sydney.

The Cats could have two big ins with Gary Ablett and captain Joel Selwood both pencilled in to make their returns from injury.
