And Mitchell was cleared of any wrongdoing over his strike on Joel Selwood.

Defender Jackson Nelson is set to miss the match against Melbourne with a hamstring injury, but Sharrod Wellingham and Sam Butler are waiting in the wings to return.

Ruckman Scott Lycett, who has played two WAFL matches since overcoming a shoulder injury, is unlikely to be rushed back into the senior side just yet.

Lycett tallied just 12 disposals and 10 hit-outs for East Perth on Saturday.

And with Nathan Vardy performing strongly in last week's win over Geelong, it appears likely West Coast will give Lycett another WAFL hit-out before considering him for senior selection.

"(Lycett) didn't get a lot of ruck time on the weekend due to a bit of a cut on his knee," Simpson told the Seven Network.

"But he played another full game and now he's not far off being fully available.

"That's another big decision we've got to make this week."

Melbourne are sweating on the fitness of star duo Jack Watts (hamstring) and Nathan Jones (quad).

The Demons will be boosted by the return of ruckman Max Gawn, who hasn't played since tearing his hamstring in round three.
