EAGLES coach John Worsfold is hoping for a two-year contract extension as he begins to plan for 2014 following his side's dismal display against Geelong last Saturday night.

After indicating last week that he was keen to continue coaching next year Worsfold gave the biggest hint yet that his preference would be for a two-year extension.

"I would like to talk to the club about that, but my last two or three contracts have been two years in length," Worsfold said.  

"So I've got a bit of a liking for two-year contracts."

Worsfold was asked how he would respond if the club only offered him a one-year deal.

"Don't know," Worsfold said.

"I would have to work out why. Why is it only one?"

Worsfold, in his 12th season as coach at West Coast, said he had received no contact from other clubs regarding coaching elsewhere in 2014.

Following the club's lowest ever score at Patersons Stadium in the 66-point loss to Geelong, Worsfold admitted it had been a bitterly disappointing season.

"It's fair to say that this year has been an underachieving year," Worsfold said.

"There's no doubt about that. It's really disappointing and we're all accountable for it."

Worsfold said it was a hollow feeling not to be planning for an assault on September.

"I've been in this position a few times," Worsfold said.

"Fortunately not too many, but it's a different feeling when you get to this time of year and you know when the end is coming.

"You're not going into a finals series and it changes how you feel."

The Eagles have already begun looking towards 2014.

The club ruled out Nic Naitanui and Mark LeCras for the rest of this season. Naitanui will be rested but does not require surgery on his troublesome groins, while LeCras is having minor knee surgery that is unrelated to his reconstruction.

Luke Shuey has been ruled out this week after his hamstring flared up again.

"He felt his hammy grab in the game the other night," Worsfold said.

"He could still run at speed but he's had a run around today and can still feel some awareness there, so Luke's unavailable this week, may be right next week."

Worsfold said the club is already looking at their recruiting for next year although he believes this team has the ability to bounce back quickly.

"The trade and the draft are two key areas that we have to look at," Worsfold said.  

"We've got the basis of a good squad here.

"I think the team can rebound and be a lot better next year."
