Bombers' Stringer pushing to take on Swans

Essendon coach John Worsfold says Jake Stringer could return for their AFL clash with Sydney at the MCG.

Essendon forward Jake Stringer is building a case for an AFL return against Sydney at the MCG after a frustrating injury-enforced absence.

Stringer hasn't played since the Bombers' round 13 win over Hawthorn when he suffered a heavy blow to his right shin.

"He's done some running early in the week and is feeling pretty good so he'll do some training today as part of assessing where he's at ... he's a chance to be selected this week," coach John Worsfold told reporters on Wednesday.
