Alex Keath is expected to be available to play this week as the Crows head west to face the reigning premier this Sunday.

The key defender has been managing an ankle injury over the past few weeks, but is likely to play against the Eagles.

“Alex has progressed nicely so he’ll train with the group this week and we expect him to be available for West Coast,” Crows General Manager of High Performance Matt Hass said.

Eddie Betts is also expected to play this weekend despite sustaining a rib injury against the Saints.

“Ed got a knee to the ribs in the second quarter in a bit of friendly fire from Sloaney,” Hass said.

“He’s pulled up well so he’ll train fully and we expect him to play.”

Kyle Hartigan will be tested at Adelaide’s main training session after sustaining an ankle injury in Saturday’s match.

“Harto rolled his ankle in a marking contest,” Hass said.

“That was assessed by the doctors, re-tapped and he played out the match.

“He’ll be managed early in the week, but we expect him to play this weekend.”
