Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley is confident a trio of reinforcements can help spark the Magpies to just their third win of the AFL season against Brisbane.

Ben Sinclair replaces the injured Ben Reid, while big-bodied midfielders Travis Varcoe and Taylor Adams come in for James Aish (dropped) and Tim Broomhead (ankle).

Buckley said Adams and Varcoe were "winners and competitors" and Sinclair will "turn himself inside out off half-back."
