Fyfe keen for Western Derby battle

Dockers skipper Nat Fyfe believes his goal kicking form will return ahead of the Western Derby on Sunday.

Speaking on 7News Fyfe said he wasn't rushing the process.

“I’m still working on my game, my goal kicking isn’t quite there at the moment but I’m starting to see it ok.

“I’m in no rush to play my best footy, it is a long season, we’ve got plenty of runway left to go.”

Sunday's midfield battle will be crucial to determine the final outcome of the result and Fyfe is excited for the challenge.

“Internally, we’re driven to win every week and particularly with the RAC Derby, we haven’t had a good record recently. We’ve got some nice momentum going and we’ll look at this week as an opportunity to continue to improve,”

“They’ve still got a very experienced midfield with a dominant ruckman. It’s going to be a great midfield challenge, there’s going to be good battles all over the ground."

Fyfe was at his dominant best in round six against North Melbourne with 34 disposals and 23 contested possessions.
