Wests Tigers Coach Mick Potter has revealed exclusively to Members that Blake Ayshford will make a return from injury this week against the Brisbane Broncos.

With Marika Koroibete being ruled out for six weeks with a dislocated elbow, Ayshford comes back into the side causing a reshuffle in the back line.

Ayshford will no doubt be a boost as the team travels to Brisbane taking on a desperate Broncos side looking to hit back following three straight losses.

Weve lost Marika, you get one back and you lose one which is unfortunate, Potter said.

Certainly Blakes experience will be helpful and we are playing a good team, a pretty desperate at that so he will add some value to us.

It gives us that little more strike, with Tim (Simona) in pretty good form and Blake coming back Im hoping that it will help us out a bit.

Brisbane trailed 24-0 early in last nights game against the Raiders but made an impressive comeback to lose just 30-18, something Potter is wary of.

I think they have just got out of the block a little bit slow, trying to pull games back late.

The game last night (against Canberra) they came back in the second half pretty well but the game was over.

They are a desperate team, as are we and at a fantastic stadium like Suncorp Im looking forward to it and the players are too.

Stay tuned for the full team announcement that will be on later this afternoon.
