Dockers forward won't be dropped

Dockers recruit Jesse Hogan is not under pressure to hold his spot in the side according to coach Ross Lyon.

Hogan did not manage to get a kick in Sunday's one-point thriller against the Brisbane Lions.

Lyon told 7NEWS on Tuesday night that Hogan would not be dropped.

“I thought in the last quarter he really stepped up, made some great contests and got involved a little bit higher up,” Lyon said.

“Some of our forwards weren’t sharing the space as well as we should have been.

“He was brilliant the week before."

Fremantle take on Collingwood at the MCG on Saturday.
