Collingullie-Glenfield Park coach Luke Gestier will return from a hamstring injury for Saturday's must-win clash against Turvey Park.
Gestier, highly-rated midfielder Jason Ainsworth and Josh Gunning all come into the Demons' for the trip to Maher Oval to take on the seventh-placed Bulldogs.
Gestier has been restricted to four games this season with his reoccurring hamstring injury and admits it has not been the start to the year he had hoped for.
"It keeps flaring up," Gestier said.
"I'm not sure if I'm pushing too hard or what it is. It's not a three or four-week hamstring by any means...it's a nerve issue.
"It's frustrating and it's been hard to get continuity, and hard to get a base there but hopefully I can string a few games together."
Ainsworth is another significant inclusion for the Demons' midfield that had their colours lowered in last Saturday's 50-point loss to Coolamon.
Gestier is looking for a lift from the Collingullie-GP midfield and believes that is where Saturday's game against the Bulldogs will be decided.
"It will be won and lost in the midfield again," he said.
"We've seen when we get use out of the midfield quickly into our forwards one-on-one, we do pretty well.
"Against Tigers we were able to kick seven in a row, and last week, when we got it in quick to a one-on-one we either got a free kick or mark."
While there is still more than half a season to be played, Gestier knows the upcoming two games against Turvey Park and Mangoplah-Cookardinia United-Eastlakes will have a large say on the Demons' season.
Collingullie-GP sit in fifth, with their next two opponents just a game back in sixth and seventh.
"We've got to win the next two and we'll still be thereabouts," he said.
Dan Kennedy and James Demby are both unavailable for the Demons.
Meantime, AFL Canberra club Ainslie have lodged a clearance for former AFL player Jordan Doering to return to the Tricolours after his five-goal heroics for Mangoplah-Cookardinia United-Eastlakes against Narrandera last Saturday.
The Goannas were hopeful they may have been able to get more games out of the 39-year-old after he made his club debut for MCUE last weekend.
