CARLTON will return to IKON Park after consecutive away games this Saturday, as the home side awaits a strong Casey Demons outfit.

The Blues are winless in their previous three games and getting their elusive fourth win will be a tough task this weekend as they face the third-placed Demons.

There is encouragement for Carlton however, when they consider that the travelling side have lost two of their last three games, after having won their first nine.

There is rotation through the squad once again, with Northern Knights talents Brooke Plummer and Rylie Wilcox exiting the line-up, alongside forward Jessica Stramandinoli.

Ella Smallacombe will return to play her first home game for the season, ensuring that there will still be a Northern Knights connection in the side.

Also returning are Laura Robertson and Teresa Zampaglione, with the latter making her first appearance for the Blues since their Round 9 win over the Bulldogs.

With Carlton now out of finals contention, players and staff will want to end the last couple of weeks on a high note to try and build some momentum going into next season.

The game kicks off at 11am on Saturday at IKON Park.
