Perth remain on the road this week, venturing north to take on the fifth placed Falcons at HBF Arena in Joondalup.

The Demons are coming off a disappointing round six loss to East Perth and will be looking to bounce back on Saturday afternoon to stay in touch with the top five.

West Perth knocked off the previously undefeated Swan Districts by five points.

Saturday afternoon's clash will not be the first time the two sides have met this year.

The Falcons hosted Perth in a preseason hitout back in early March where the Demons won in convincing fashion 22.17 (149) to 11.5 (71).

Perth's chances of replicating that result are set to receive a massive boost, with big bodied midfielder Brant Colledge likely to return after missing the past month with a hamstring injury.

Other potential inclusions include Julian Jacobs, Taran Etto and Marshall Jones who have all been strong performers in the Development side.

On a dour note, in-form forward Spencer White is set to miss the next month with shin soreness.

Four points on Saturday will see the Demons sit just one win out of the top five.

League bounce down is at 2.15pm, Development at 11:30am and Colts at 9am.

Teams will be announced on the club's website from 10am Friday.
