West Coast Eagles and Geelong Cats go head-to-head at Optus Stadium on Saturday night with the hosts looking a good thing against an undermanned Cats side.

The Eagles were impressive winners over Collingwood last week, while the Cats also won against Fremantle Dockers. But they made heavy weather of that on Monday night, and are on the quick turnaround without some key men.

Geelong Cats Form & Team News

The Cats had to dig deep for a hard-fought 48-18 win over the Dockers in a low-scoring affair in the rain on Monday. It's a quick turnaround for Geelong, who stayed in Perth ahead of the showdown with the Eagles.

That win was a fourth from the last five games for Geelon and kept the Cats in the top four but the absence of Gary Ablett and Joel Selwood is likely to be felt even more so against the Eagles.

The Cats are unchanged.

HB: Jack Henry, Harry Taylor, Tom Stewart
