CAN THE injury-riddled Pies get the job done against the Swans, or will Sydney get its high-flying season back on track?
The sixth-placed Swans are coming off a loss to ladder-leader Melbourne, and will be looking for their sixth win of the season.
The 16th-placed Pies snapped a five-game losing streak last week against winless North Melbourne, will be looking for their third win of the season against the Swans.
Jordan De Goey booted six goals in an electric performance for the Pies last week, while defender Darcy Moore's pinch-hitting in the forward line yielded three goals.
Curbing De Goey's influence will be crucial for the Swans, while Sydney will also be hoping for a a strong performance from Buddy Franklin after a quiet return from injury last week.
Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley said his backline would be undersized against the Swans' tall forwards, after key defender Jordan Roughead was ruled out with concussion during the week.
