Gawn remains in doubt for Demons in AFL

Star ruckman Max Gawn will be given time to prove his fitness for Melbourne's AFL clash with Carlton.

Melbourne star Max Gawn remains in doubt for Sunday's AFL match against Carlton as he struggles to overcome a serious ankle sprain.

Gawn did not train on Thursday but coach Simon Goodwin said the ruckman would try to prove his fitness on Saturday.

"We're going to give him right to the end ... we're certainly not going to risk him because he's such an important player for us," Goodwin said on Thursday.
