Already missing star foursome, Nathan Fyfe, Michael Johnson, Aaron Sandilands and Harley Bennell, the Dockers can ill-afford to lose their best midfielder so far this season in Lachie Neale.

Neale remains in doubt for Saturday afternoon's match against the Crows as he struggles to overcome a thigh and calf issue. 

The 22 year old has been a shining light for the Dockers so far this season, averaging 31 disposals a match across the first five games of the season, including 35 against the Blues last Sunday.

According to reports, Neale trained away from the main group on Wednesday with a number of compression bandages on the affected areas.

In much better news, captain David Mundy is expected to make his return from a calf injury this weekend.
