CARLTON will pick former top 10 pick key forward Harry McKay for the first time since Round 10 as Collingwood waits to the last minute on Will Hoskin-Elliott

McKay will be picked after finally getting some continuity in his training, according to coach Brendon Bolton.

He was the travelling emergency over the weekend but will return to the Blues’ side against St Kilda on Friday after the loss of Andrew Phillips (hamstring).

Caleb Marchbank has been cleared by a cardiologist after an elevated heartbeat and will also take on the Saints along with Kade Simpson, who has recovered from a right calf.

The injury-ravaged Collingwood side for Sunday’s clash with the Eagles has taken shape, with Flynn Appleby ruled out with a hamstring injury and Travis Varcoe and Darcy Moore into the squad.

“We had 26 (players) out on the track today and that will basically be the squad we put in this evening,” Buckley said.

Will Hoskin-Elliott trained this morning and will be given every chance to play this weekend after suffering bone bruising against Essendon last Sunday.

“Will has pulled up pretty well from the knee injury that he sustained, and he moved around OK today, but we’ll see how that pulls up before declaring him for Sunday,” Buckley said

Last night, Geelong regained Daniel Menzel for the first time since Round 5 and have also recalled Wylie Buzza and Sam Simpson for the clash with Adelaide at Adelaide Oval tonight.

Harry Taylor, Jordan Murdoch and Lachie Fogarty are all injured after last week’s bruising win over Sydney.

Menzel’s return is crucial to the Cats’ forward set-up. He missed almost three months after an injection went wrong and left him struggling to walk.

The goalkicker has played VFL for the past fortnight.

Eddie Betts is a huge in for Adelaide as the Crows look to keep their slim finals changes alive.

Betts, Riley Knight, Rory Atkins and Lachie Murphy are in for the game with Curtly Hampton, Myles Poholke and Darcy Fogarty all paying the price for last week’s disappointing loss to Richmond.

Richard Douglas is out injured.

Geelong sits seventh ahead of the trip to Adelaide two games ahead of the Crows in 11th.

North Melbourne is ready to pounce if the Cats slip up, sitting ninth on percentage, while Greater Western Sydney is still in finals contention half a game and percentage behind.
