West Coast coach Adam Simpson says he'll need to manage Scott Lycett during the AFL finals series while the ruckman battles a knee injury.

Lycett has battled a posterior cruciate ligament complaint since the middle of the season, and underwent scans earlier this week.

Simpson expects Lycett to play against the Bulldogs in next Thursday's elimination final in Perth, but says the South Australian may need to spend more time up forward.
