Magpies forced into De Goey injury denial


//

Collingwood has been forced into denying that Jordan de Goey has suffered a setback in his recovery from a hamstring injury after he was spotted having scans on Monday.

De Goey has missed the past two weeks as he aims to be healthy for the Pies' finals campaign, but could miss the final two matches of the home and away season.

The star forward is one of several Magpies nursing injuries, including defender Darcy Moore, and Collingwood's head of football, Geoff Walsh, dismissed suggestions that De Goey had suffered a setback.

"Speaking to our medical guys this morning, it would be expected both (De Goey) and Darcy would come up a bit short," Walsh told AFL.com.au.

However, Walsh's comments seem to contradict those from the star forward, who last week told Triple M that he was hopeful of returning for the Pies' Round 22 clash against Adelaide.

Along with De Goey and Moore, the Magpies are eagerly awaiting the inclusion of Jaidyn Stephenson as he serves his suspension for betting.

Also among the potential inclusions for Nathan Buckley's side for the finals includes veteran midfielder Daniel Wells, who is hoping to return from the PCL injury he suffered in Round 10.

Collingwood's opponent Adelaide is also facing a nervous wait on one of its own stars, with Rory Sloane no certainty to take part at the Adelaide Oval after suffering an eye injury.
