Fremantle coach Ross Lyon says there's no selection pressure on Hayden Ballantyne despite the goalsneak's lean run of form.

Ballantyne has booted just seven goals this season, with the 28-year-old going goalless in his past two games.

Lyon says Ethan Hughes is likely to be recalled for just his second game in Saturday's AFL clash with GWS at Domain Stadium, while Ballantyne will avoid the selection axe.
