THE Bendigo Gold will field a close to full-strength squad in Saturday's practice match against Footscray.
The Footscray VFL squad includes former Geelong and Essendon midfielder Brent Prismall, plus Nick Lower and Lucas Markovic.
The Gold had a comfortable win over BFNL premier Golden Square last Thursday night and Jones expects his side to be better for the run.
"We struggled early on, but for most of the game we were pretty good,'' Jones said.
"We moved the ball well and restricted Golden Square well, but the Square did have some good players missing."
Saturday's game against Footscray at Epsom-Huntly Recreation Reserve starts at 1pm.
