Gold Coast star Gary Ablett has been ruled out of this week's clash with Brisbane.
The midfielder is still battling a hamstring concern.
Gold Coast interim coach Dean Solomon confirmed the news during his first press conference.
"I just spoke to him then and he's really keen to push hard for next week," he told reporters on Thursday.
Ablett has again been plagued by injury, playing just three of a possible eight games in the past two months.
Despite that, he has been in terrific form, averaging 37 disposals and 10.3 clearances across those three games.
Solom said, despite everything, Ablett has been good around the group.
"His attitude has been amazing over the last 24 or 48 hours," he said.
"He has absolute buy-in, he wants to do that, he's heavily invested in this football club.
"I can't be more impressed with the attitude he's shown."
