Port Adelaide spearhead Charlie Dixon will be given until the last minute to prove his fitness ahead of the AFL clash with Sydney.

Coach Ken Hinkley says the star forward has to get through training at the SCG to guarantee his spot on Saturday after being recalled a week ahead of his scheduled return from an ankle injury.

"The only way Charlie won't play, in my view, is if something goes wrong in the warm-up tomorrow and he doesn't feel comfortable ... we expect that not to be the case," Hinkley said on Friday.
