Shaw injury blow for Pies

Collingwood defender Heath Shaw is expected to miss Friday night's clash with Sydney.

Shaw, who was suspended for last week's win over Geelong, is understood to have tightness in the hamstring and is not expected to be named in the team when it is announced later on Thursday.

Shaw was suspended for striking Fremantle's Hayden Ballantyne and missed last week's game. He had already complained of soreness in the tendon after that game and the club has now conservatively opted against playing him this week against the reigning premier.
