The likely return of Kurt Tippett will add much-needed experience to the Sydney Swans as they look to cement a place in the AFL top four when they meet North Melbourne in Hobart on Saturday.

Coach John Longmire said the 29-year-old, a long-term absentee after undergoing hamstring tendon surgery, is training well and should be fit, although his role in the side is yet to be decided.

"He could possibly play as a permanent forward ... but we know he's capable of playing in the ruck," said Longmire.
