The Demons return to Lathlain Park this Saturday to take on league leaders South Fremantle.

Perth will be looking to bounce back from last Saturday's 19 point loss to West Perth, their fourth loss of the season by under four goals.

Their opponents, South Fremantle, enter Saturday afternoon's contest with a 5-1 win-loss record before a round seven bye.

The Demons could be without wingman Laine Wilkins (finger) and midfielder Liam McKenna (knee), who both sustained injuries at HBF Arena last Saturday.

Potential inclusions include Kurtis Chester, Callum Walley, Julian Jacobs, Joshua Burke, Marshall Jones and Nelson Ansey who have all been performing strongly at Development level.

Teams will be announced via the Club's website from 10am Friday.

League bounce down is 2.15pm.











Earlier in the day, Perth's Development side (2nd) meet South Fremantle (1st) in a top-of-the-table clash.

Both sides have won five of their first six games and Saturday's winner will move to outright top of the Development ladder.

The Development game commences at 11.30am.

Coming off their first win of the season last Saturday, Perth Colts will be looking to make it two wins in a row on Saturday morning when they take on the bottom-placed Bulldogs.

Colts bounce down is 9am.
