AFL: Geelong midfielder Mitch Duncan is expecting the Cats to name star teammate Patrick Dangerfield to make the trip to the Gold Coast this weekend.

The reigning Brownlow Medallist has been below his best since copping a knee to the ribs in the Cats' big win against Hawthorn on Easter Monday.

But when asked if Dangerfield would play the Suns on Saturday, Duncan replied "Yes, absolutely, 100%".

It shapes as a titanic battle in the midfield with Dangerfield and his skipper Joel Selwood taking on former Cat Gary Ablett.

"We'll have to put a bit of time into (Ablett)," Duncan said.

"We haven't spoken about it yet. I'm sure the coaches will talk about it when they get together. He's back in some good form."

While the Cats have dropped just the one game in the opening six rounds, the Suns have notched just two wins and are coming off back-to-back losses.
