Fremantle Coach Ross Lyon expects to make significant changes at the Dockers this week after Sunday nights flogging at the hands of Port Adelaide.

The Dockers went into the match with the same lineup that lost to Geelong last week and were never in the contest as Port booted six unanswered first quarter goals before running away to win by 89 points.

Lyon (pictured) says the time for loyalty has now passed and will wield the axe ahead the clash with the Bulldogs on Saturday night.
