    导出博客文章West Coast coach Adam Simpson admits his team wont make much of an impact during
    finals time if they dont get out of their current funk, but hes not panicking
    just yet.The Eagles (12-5) enter round 19 just percentage adrift of second spot
    following a five-match winning run; all against sides below them on the
    ladder.But their patchy form during that streak has been a huge concern, with
    the absence of star ruckman Nic Naitanui telling.West Coast were lucky to notch
    a six-point win over Melbourne last week after losing the inside-50m count
    66-37.Naitanui (Achilles surgery) wont return until next weeks clash with
    Fremantle, meaning the Eagles will need to come up with a different way to
    generate enough attacking opportunities against Collingwood at the MCG on
    Saturday.A loss to Collingwood would prove disastrous to West Coasts top-four
    hopes, and Simpson is well aware the stakes are high.But rather than panic,
    Simpson said it was just a matter of helping the clubs mid-tier players
    rediscover the form they displayed during last years run to the grand final.I
    would have thought a few have dropped away, Simpson said.We need them stepping
    up.Our good players are playing well at the moment, we just need a few more
    contributors.The Eagles will start as favourites against both Collingwood and
    Fremantle.But their top-four hopes will be put to the test in the final three
    rounds, when they take on GWS (away), Hawthorn (home) and Adelaide
    (away).Simpson knows his team need to get out of their recent funk if they are
    to be a legitimate challenger for the premiership this year.You would have
    thought were not going to progress too far if we continue to play the same
    standard were playing at the moment, Simpson said.We understand that every game
    is critical for us at the moment because were fighting with six other sides for
    two or three spots up the top there.The challenge for us is we want to be a
    consistent top-four side, and were not there yet.I dont think having one good
    season gets you that right. Were still working towards that consistency with our
    sustained success.It doesnt necessarily mean youll win a premiership every year.
    But if you can be a contender and up amongst it, thats our ultimate goal.West
    Coast havent beaten Collingwood at the MCG since 1995, and Simpson said it was a
    challenge his team would embrace.Collingwood were dealt a triple injury blow
    when Alex Fasolo (shoulder), Jarryd Blair (groin), and Ben Sinclair (concussion)
    were all forced out this week.West Coast recalled Dom Sheed for his first AFL
    match of the season, while Will Schofield, Mark Hutchings and Simon Tunbridge
    also return to the side. Wholesale
