Brisbane have made one change for their preliminary final side with Cameron Ellis-Yolmen recalled for the do or die battle with the Cats tomorrow night at the Gabba.

The hulking midfielder has played eight games after joining the Lions from Adelaide as a free agent last off-season and last appeared in the round 18 win over the Sydney Swans in Cairns.

He replaces first year forward Kiedean Coleman as the only change to the side that defeated Richmond by 15 points in the Qualifying Final.

Geelong has a wealth of finals experience in comparison to Brisbane but coach Chris Fagan says what has happened in the past is of no concern to his men.

Nor would they be thinking beyond Saturday night having made a commitment to live in the moment and fight to the death.

"Experience is a wonderful thing, there's no doubt about that, but I can't go and give our guys an injection of that," he said.

"The thing you can't get caught up in is the result, the prize at the end of it, you've got to focus on every minute of the game and doing the right things.

"That's pretty much how you have to play preliminary finals, you have to fight to the death.

"Most of them are close games.

"If you start thinking about other things, I reckon that you probably play with a little more fear, we want to be fearless tomorrow so we'll just focus on the process."
