Dockers lock up top four spot at the cost of ruckman and small forward.
Fremantle coach Ross Lyon gave his assurance that Aaron Sandilands and Hayden Ballantyne will be right to play in the first week of the AFL finals.
The pair failed to finish the game as the Dockers cruised to a 95-point win against the Melbourne Demons with Sandilands copping a head-knock and Ballantyne a shoulder injury.
Sandilands was taken to hospital for precautionary X-rays for a suspected fractured cheekbone after he copped a hit in the first quarter and was subbed out of the contest.
Ballantyne suffered the shoulder complaint late in the game with the result well in the bag, but looked in serious pain while be was being treated by a trainer on the ground.
Lyon admitted he is likely to be without the pair for the Dockers’ game against Port Adelaide, but with a fortnight until the first round of the finals, he backed them to be passed fit in time.
“It doesn’t look great (for Aaron). I couldn’t tell you exactly what it is, it looks like a (fractured) cheekbone,” Lyon said.
“From there, we’re really confident. I have seen Stephen Milne with two fractured cheekbones and play the next week and, with us, Mick Barlow.
“So we know you can play with them. But potentially he could miss one, two. But he will certainly be available when the whips are cracking so that is really positive.
“Hayden, he just feel over and wrenched his shoulder. He’s had a wrist reconstruction before so at first we thought it might have been that.
“But he’s OK. He’s a bit upset. The shoulder, it’s a bit of a sub-lux. He’ll be fine as well, we’ve had plenty of players with them.
