Josh Battle will return to the senior line-up ahead of St Kilda’s clash with Sydney for the fifth Pride Game.

The 21-year-old was sidelined before last week’s triumph with a minor cheek fracture and mild concussion sustained against Adelaide.

Battle comes in for the injured Dean Kent, who'll miss with knee soreness.

Shane Savage, Jack Lonie, Jonathon Marsh and Jack Bytel have been named as emergencies; the latter for the first time in his career.

St Kilda will be gunning for its third consecutive win of Season 2020 when they face Sydney at the Gabba, with the opening bounce for the milestone Pride Game set for 5:10pm.
