The Magpies have already sealed their spot in the finals, but will be desperate to win and avoid an elimination final against West Coast in Perth. Victory will mean a 'home' do-or-die final against St Kilda.

Incredibly this match will shape the entire finals fixture with all eight teams to learn their opponents after tonight's game.

Collingwood has recalled young playmaker Jaidyn Stephenson after he was dropped for last week's win over Gold Coast. He comes into the side at the expense of Callum Brown.

Port made two changes for the contest with Boyd Woodcock and Jarrod Lienert replacing Kane Farrell (omitted) and Tom Clurey (hamstring).
