Port Adelaide could be in big trouble for their match against Melbourne in Alice Springs this weekend with the Herald Sun reporting that trio Jackson Trengove (ankle), Hamish Hartlett (corked thigh) and Darcy Byrne-Jones (ankle) all in doubt.

The Herald Sun reports that the Power is monitoring the trio, with Sam Gray and Brendon Ah Chee, the two emergencies flying up as cover, should injuries not improve.

Power coach Ken Hinkley says he is confident all three will play, but all have been on modified programs all week, nursing the injuries. 

With Max Gawn waiting, losing Jackson Trengove could be a disaster given the Power's limited ruck stocks available due to injury and suspension.
