ST KILDA coach Scott Watters 'couldn't care less' about Ross Lyon's decision to make 10 changes to the Fremantle side for Saturday's clash at Etihad Stadium.

The Dockers are in Melbourne this week, and will return again next weekend in the first round of finals, even facing the prospect of a bus trip from the airport to Geelong's Simonds Stadium.

Of the 10 changes only three are forced; Michael Walters (brusied knee), Nick Suban (hamstring) and Stephen Hill (hamstring) are all injured.

But seven others; Michael Johnson, David Mundy, Nathan Fyfe, Hayden Ballantyne, Lee Spurr, Zac Dawson and Zac Clarke, have all been rested.

"Opposition coaches, they select their own side so I couldn't care less who plays. It's irrelevant," Watters said on Friday.  

"From my point of view we're playing a faceless team. They've got a lot of quality players who are out there regardless of who's in or out, so we won't be walking into any ambush," he said.  

"We certainly knew that it was on the cards, we've got some strong sources over there. It's a pretty natural thing to happen (the) week before finals, so it's not a massive surprise.

Justin Koschitzke got through his final training session and will reach the 200-game milestone in what will be his farewell match.

"He'll play, and it's a great way for him to finish. He just needs to concentrate really strongly on his performance," Watters said.
