Geelong Cats coach Chris Scott says he has a couple of players in mind for the all important defensive job on Eddie Betts on Friday night.

The Cats have drawn to within two points of the ladder leading Crows, with the Giants looming in third place.

Scott (pictured) says while Zac Tuohy has been effective on the mercurial Betts in the past, if Eddie has a day out then it will be a question of hanging on and hoping for the best.
