ANTHONY Morabito appears hard-pressed to play another AFL game for Fremantle with just two games remaining in the Dockers' horror season.

The luckless 24-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season.

He was delisted at the end of last year after not playing a single game at any level due to ongoing soreness in the left knee that he has reconstructed three times. He was re-drafted as a rookie on a one-year deal. 

Morabito gathered 26 disposals in the WAFL last week but there was a bye for Peel Thunder this week. He averaged 14 touches in his previous four outings although he bagged three goals in one of those matches. 

Fremantle coach Ross Lyon had previously stated that he needed to "get moving" and "there's no doubt Anthony is feeling (time) closing in on him."

Lyon was asked on Sunday if Morabito would be considered for next week's trip to face Greater Western Sydney, but he couldn't guarantee it.  

"Anthony played OK the week before, and there was a bye this week," Lyon said. 

"I can't speak for the whole match committee. I understand the emotion wrapped around Anthony.

"But what I will say about Anthony ... I think he's played (three) AFL games in six years.

"We've been an incredibly supportive club in the context since 2010. That's without question. That's what I would put on the table.

"Our emotional support for Anthony, our resources, our contracting opportunities - regardless of whether Anthony plays next week or the week after - has been first-class, and I don't think anyone can dispute that." 

Young small forward Josh Deluca is also running out of opportunities. He was drafted in 2014 but has not played a game for the Dockers in his two years at the club and Lyon said he was also under pressure to win his place in the last two games.

"Josh has a bit of work to do to be truthful," Lyon said.

Aaron Sandilands will be in doubt for next week after suffering a minor strain in the 72-point loss to Adelaide on Sunday. 

Matthew Pavlich will be rested next week to ensure he is available for his farewell match against the Western Bulldogs in round 23 at Domain Stadium.

Lyon said key forward Matt Taberner would come into consideration to replace Pavlich next week after he lost his place in the Dockers' side a fortnight ago.
