Brisbane Lions ruckman Mitch Clark has been injured during today’s final training session and will be out of tomorrow night’s clash with Fremantle at the Gabba.
But Jed Adcock and Justin Sherman have recovered from their injuries and will play, as the Lions try to avoid three losses in a row.
Wendy Fung reports.

Lions defender Andrew Raines may be out with a calf injury but that won’t stop him from raising money for breast cancer.
The charity “Chicks in Pink” will be raising funds and celebrating Mother’s day at the game.
Matt Maguire was also suspended for one game by the AFL Tribunal last night.
The Lions have lost their past two games and are currently sitting 6th on the ladder.
Michael Voss, Senior Lions Coach: “You either go on a continual of losses or you can make amends and get a win on the board and we got a nice challenge we’re playing a top of the table team.”
Fremantle have never won a game at the Gabba but this is a very different side.
Mark Harvey, Fremantle Senior Coach: “Actually I think we would probably have nine or ten players who possibly haven’t played here so sometimes that can be an issue but these days players are well adverse to, well our guys particularly playing on the road.”
Tomorrow’s game may also be one to remember for Brendan Fevola. He is four goals away from becoming the 27th player in AFL history to have kicked 600 goals.
Contrary to rumour, Fevola doesn’t have a serious heel injury and will play.
Michael Voss, Lions Senior Coach: “Fed’s okay, this is not a Brown epidemic. You can trust me if you want to trust my word that Fevola is actually okay.”
