Dockers coach backs Silvagni

Fremantle coach Ross Lyon says defender Alex Silvagni is a certain starter for Sunday’s AFL clash with St Kilda at Etihad Stadium.

Silvagni has been sidelined for much of the season by a hamstring injury, but his return will allow fellow defender Alex Pearce to remain up forward.

Lyon says he’s confident star midfielder Nat Fyfe (groin) will return for next week’s western derby against West Coast.
