Having had his pre-season interrupted by a hamstring injury, defender Sam Martyn will make his NEAFL return against Sydney University tomorrow afternoon.
Having missing the first three weeks of the NEAFL season, Martyn’s return will be a big addition to the Demons’ back-line who are looking to bounce back following Good Friday's defeat to Southport.
General Manager of Football Shaun Young said Martyn’s ability to get back in a position to imminently play was as a result of his application on and off the track.
“Sam has had a really, really pleasing month of training,” Young said.
"His work on and off the field has been at a very high standard."
Martyn will return alongside midfielder Kel Evans who has recovered from a foot injury suffered in the loss against Redland.
Billy Clark and Donald Roberts have both been omitted.
