Bombers give the latest on Stringer and McGrath ahead of the anniversary game

Essendon is set to welcome Jake Stringer back for Friday night’s 150th anniversary celebration against Carlton.

Stringer has not played since round 7 after injuring his hamstring in training.

Bombers Head of High Performance Sean Murphy confirmed the midfielder’s striker is approaching a return.

“String is now in the back of his rehab,” Murphy told Essendon’s website.

“He has ticked off some good sessions in recent weeks.

“During the bye he had some solid sessions so he is ready to go.

“He will train fully in Wednesday’s main training session and this weekend he will be in front of the selection.”

Essendon’s vice-captain Andrew McGrath injured his groin in practice last weekend but remains an opportunity to face the Blues.

“We trained over the weekend and unfortunately Andy just pinched that groin,” Murphy said.

“It’s not too bad, but we’ll use the week to assess how that comes from main practice later in the week and its availability for Friday.

“He still has a chance at the moment.”

Utility Matt Guelfi has recovered from a hamstring injury and is available for selection.

Essendon’s upcoming game against seventh-seeded Carlton is the first of three consecutive Friday night games.

The Bombers (2-9) are currently on a losing streak of three games.
