Swan Dean Towers on track for AFL return

Handy Sydney utility Dean Towers is on track to return to the Swans side for Saturday's AFL home game against North Melbourne.

He missed the away win over Geelong last week with an eye bleed, but Swans' coach John Longmire said before training on Thursday, things looked positive for Towers.

Towers's return would give first-choice Sydney ruckman Callum Sinclair some respite in his duel with Kangaroos' ace Todd Goldstein.
