GEELONG captain Joel Selwood has been cleared of a fracture in his right hand and has declared himself a certain starter for Saturday night's pivotal clash against the Sydney Swans at ANZ Stadium.

Selwood played the second half  with a noticeably swollen hand during the Cats' 41-point win over Collingwood at the MCG on Friday night, raising fears he could be set for a stint on the sidelines.

However, the Cats skipper has allayed those concerns.

"I've got the scans back and all has come up well," Selwood told the club's website on Monday morning.

"There's no fracture in there, and I've just got to work away at getting it better now."

Selwood played out the game against the Pies and gathered 26 disposals, five marks, seven tackles and a goal.

The Geelong captain said his sole focus was on getting ready for a showdown with the Swans.

"[I'll] work away with the medical staff and just get the swelling out of it, but I'll be fine to go this Saturday night," he said.
