The Fremantle Dockers are drawing closer to having Harley Bennell available for selection.

Since joining the Dockers, Bennell has struggled to overcome a series of calf injuries that have seen him seek treatment overseas.

It was only a couple of weeks ago that Bennell suffered a setback in his recovery but Freo star Lachie Neal (pictured) says with the way his rehab is progressing, the club believes Bennell is every chance of making his long awaited Dockers debut in the current season.
