WEST Coast should receive a much-needed speed injection for Sunday's historic Western Derby with coach Adam Simpson expecting line-breaker Lewis Jetta to overcome general soreness.  

Jetta missed the trip to face Carlton at the MCG, leaving the Eagles light on for leg speed after ankle injuries suffered by youngsters Liam Ryan and Daniel Venables.

But the former Swan is tipped to be right for the much-anticipated clash with Fremantle at Optus Stadium.

"(Jetta) should be pretty good to go. He was just pretty sore from the first four or five rounds," Simpson told Channel Seven. 

"We looked after him a little bit, he might have been able to get up late but we didn't take the risk with the travel. 

"We think he'll be available." 

Star midfielder Luke Shuey was pivotal in the 10-point win over the Blues with 24 touches and a goal, despite carrying a toe injury, and there were concerns after he was spotted in a moon boot post-game.

"I think he'll be OK. It's the same as the week before. He's just carried a bit of a toe injury, so that's pulled up the same this week, " Simpson said.

"He should be fine to train on Thursday. 

"Anyone with a lower-leg injury – short-term or long-term – you've got to look after them straight away.

"With travel and the flights we put them in a boot just as a precaution."

After plenty of conjecture about Optus Stadium's hard surface, the Eagles and Dockers have agreed not to train on the venue for the next three weeks.

AFL.com.au understands visiting teams also won't have access to train at the ground.

"I think, in conjunction with Fremantle, the guys have decided to work on the ground a fair bit in the next two or three weeks," Simpson said. 

"We'll stay off it and give them every chance to get it right and back them in that they'll get it done."

Simpson, who raised concerns about the surface last week after several lower-leg injuries suffered by players, was uncertain if work was required because of Sunday's night's Nitro Circus motorbike event staged at Optus Stadium. 

"I don't know. That's beyond my area of knowledge," he said.

"I know they're doing everything they can. Of course, player safety is first. We try to look after our players.

"There's no complaints, it's just reality."
