Geelong Cats coach Chris Scott has confirmed that a number of players are due back in the next game for the club.

The Cats snapped a three-game losing streak on Saturday evening with a 22-point win over the Bulldogs, having lost to the GWS Giants, Fremantle Dockers and Richmond Tigers in recent weeks.

The news for Geelong, who had plenty out during the Bulldogs' clash, gets better with Mitch Duncan, Patrick Dangerfield and Max Holmes all expected to play after next week's bye.

Geelong will face Port Adelaide at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday June 15 in their next game, giving the club a much-needed 11-day break.

"We'll get some players back post-bye – Dangerfield will play, Duncan will play, Holmes will play – but after tonight, I shouldn't say that because I can't work out who is going to go out," Scott said during his post-game press conference.

That still leaves Cam Guthrie, Evasa Ratugolea and Rhys Stanley on the sidelines for the Cats, with Ratugolea the next player expected back - potentially as soon as Round 16 against the Sydney Swans - as he continues to recover from a hamstring strain.

Scott said he was proud of his side for taking victory over the Bulldogs.

"I'm really proud of the approach our players took to the game. I thought it was a high-quality game", Chris Scott said post-match.

"We didn't feel like we had control of it for large periods, but our less experienced players played with the kind of assertiveness and positivity that we were after. That's the exciting part.

"I can't speak for every player or person within the footy department, because everyone is a little bit different, but I do have a degree of confidence that while there is a bit of talk about what the future will hold, whether we win or lose, we're just not in that mindset. We're far from in a position where we think we're off and rolling."

The win over the Bulldogs moves Geelong into the top eight ahead of next week's bye.
