The Demons will take on traditional rivals Swan Districts for the third time this season at Lathlain Park on Saturday.

The two teams last played in round 11, with Swan Districts too strong on that occasion and leaving with a 33 point victory.

After coming off another tough loss against South Fremantle, the Demons will be looking to put it all on the line back on home soil.

With Earl Spalding clearly disappointed after Sunday's loss, he did say there would be no choice but to make a few changes this week.

With the development side having a great win against top side South Fremantle last week, there are a number of boys putting their hand up for senior selection.

Experienced utility Brent Edmonds, inside midfielders Kurtis Chester and Taran Etto, key position player Nelson Ansey and lively forwards Brennan Stack and Kristian Cary are all coming off brilliant games in the reserves.

Development coach Andrew Panetta said it was the best game he's had the pleasure of coaching, and it looks like the development side are well placed to have a crack at a finals series.

Andrew Ruck's colts will be looking to hit back after an up and down game last week and take it to a top 5 side in Swans.

Listen to Wednesday evening's episode of DeeRadio 

League bouncedown is at the normal time of 2:15pm with Development at 11:30am and Colts at 9:00am.
