It’s mixed news on the injury front for the Brisbane Lions who travel to Perth for Sunday’s clash with Fremantle at Optus Stadium.

The Lions will be without defender Keidean Coleman for at least the Round 21 encounter due to an eye injury sustained in Saturday’s match with the Gold Coast Suns.

Coleman, who was hit in the face by the football during the game, will be further assessed in the coming days.

The Club is also waiting to make a decision on ruckman Oscar McInerney who rolled his ankle in the weekend’s loss.

In good news for Brisbane, exciting midfielder-forward Zac Bailey is available for selection for his first game since Round 18 after missing the Lions last two matches with an ankle injury.


Oscar McInerney – ankle – test

Keidean Coleman – eye – 1-2 weeks

Noah Answerth - Face Fracture - 3 weeks

Carter Michael - Quad - TBC

James Madden - Shoulder - season

Will Ashcroft – Knee - season
