Geelong coach Chris Scott did not believe Brisbane small forward Charlie Cameron had a major impact on his side’s one-point loss to the Lions.

Cameron, who is currently equal-fourth in the Coleman Medal standings, booted five of his side’s 10 goals, including two critical goals in a nail-biting final quarter.

It backs up Cameron’s six-goal outing against Gold Coast the week before.

Speaking to the media following the Cats’ heartbreaking loss, Scott however, did not believe Cameron’s influence on the game was the deciding factor.

“Did you think Charlie was the difference today?” Scott said when asked about what his plan was for Cameron.

“I thought he was good late. I don’t think he had a huge influence on the game, but that’s my initial reaction.

“I thought he took his chances when they were presented.

“Did I misread that, was he the difference?”

Scott’s side will look to bounce back on Saturday when they host an in-form Carlton outfit at GMHBA Stadium, needing a win to secure a top-two spot.

For Cameron, his five-goal outing brought his season tally up to 52 goals which have seen many around the league suggest that Cameron has officially replaced Eddie Betts as the premier small forward in the competition.
