Richmond small forward Jake King is expected to return to the Richmond line-up for Saturday’s clash against Geelong at the MCG.

King was unavailable for last Friday night’s match against Fremantle due to a corked buttock, but is bullish about his chances of lining up against the Cats.

“Hopefully everything turns around, and it settles down.  It has at the moment, so hopefully I can get up against the Cats,” King said.

Richmond defender Troy Chaplin will be assessed through the week, as he bids to overcome a minor calf injury.

Meanwhile, the Tigers will regain the services of Steven Morris, who missed last week’s match through suspension.

However, young midfielder Brett O’Hanlon is expected to miss the next 4-6 weeks with a foot ligament strain, which he suffered while playing for Coburg in the VFL last Saturday.

And emerging Tigers’ midfielder Reece Conca is expected to be sidelined for the next 3-5 weeks with a stress reaction in his right foot.
