Alex Witherden will return to the Brisbane Lions team for Sunday's match against the Melbourne Demons at the MCG. 

Witherden missed one game after picking up a minor hamstring injury against the Western Bulldogs in Round 20.

Senior Coach Chris Fagan confirmed Witherden's selection this morning.

"We took a cautionary approach with Witherden last week," Fagan said in his weekly press conference

"He's trained strongly and has been able to force his way back into the team."
