Fremantle will be without Aaron Sandilands for at least another week as the influential ruckman continues to recover from a hamstring injury.
Sandilands was a late withdrawal from the Dockers’ mach against Collingwood on Sunday at Domain Stadium which they lost by 20 points.
Fremantle coach Ross Lyon confirmed on Wednesday that the four-time All-Australian would not face the Brisbane Lions at the Gabba on Saturday night.
The match looms as a crucial one for the Dockers who have to win to stay in the top eight this week.
The Dockers have won their last nine matches against the Lions and their last four at the Gabba.
