Fremantle Dockers defender Alex Pearce in doubt for date with Sydney’s Lance Franklin after missing training

Fremantle are drawing up multiple plans for taming Sydney superstar Lance Franklin, with preferred match-up Alex Pearce in doubt after being unable to train fully under lights at their Cockburn base on Wednesday night.

The Dockers switched up their usual routine as they continue a run of night games against fellow contenders, with their clash with the Swans at Optus Stadium followed by a pair of glamour Friday night assignments against Richmond and Melbourne.

Franklin, who will play in his home State for the first time since reaching the 1000-goal milestone earlier this year, has proved unstoppable with 14 goals in his only two previous appearances at Optus Stadium.

Pearce began the session by walking laps alone and later joined in part of the session. He withdrew from last Saturday night’s match against St Kilda after hurting his calf in the warm-up.
