Jordan De Goey has been in top form this season

COLLINGWOOD is set to make two changes at the 11th hour to its line-up to face St Kilda on Saturday at the MCG. 

AFL.com.au understands Darcy Moore and Jordan De Goey are set to be late withdrawals with a number of Pies' emergencies on standby. 

De Goey has been on restricted duties at training in recent days as he battles lower leg soreness that flared late in the win over Carlton last week.

The Pies are also expected to take a cautious approach with Darcy Moore after he pulled up sore, despite training with the main group this week. 

After heading to Germany for world-leading treatment on his troublesome hamstring in the off-season, Moore had previously been mooted for a rest before the club's round 13 bye. 

FULL INJURY LIST Who's ruled out and who's a test?

It is understood the Saints are preparing for both Moore and De Goey to miss. 

Collingwood's emergencies are Rupert Wills, Daniel Wells, Isaac Quaynor and James Aish. 

The Pies will have the ability to have contingencies in place for all four emergencies with the VFL side to play on Sunday.
