Collingwood hope to have Daniel Wells available for the latter part of the season after his latest  calf injury.

Wells has battled calf injuries for his entire AFL career, first during his 14 year career with the Kangaroos and they have continued since his move to the Magpies.

Wells has played just six games for the club this year and coach Nathan Buckley (pictured)  says he’s hopeful that the latest setback for 32 year old Wells will still allow him to contribute to the clubs finals charge.
