The Cats have lost plenty of talent this week, but will also receive a welcome boost to its undermanned side for its crucial clash with Richmond on Saturday afternoon.
Motlop has been battling a groin injury, while Menzel has been experiencing soreness in his knee.
“It’s impossible to replace some of the guys we’ve got going out. But we have some confidence in the quality we’ll bring back,” Scott said.
“Menzel and Motlop will play.
“We’re very confident in Menzel and Motlop. We’ve been so clear in what our aims have been in their preparation.
“We weren’t going to play them unless they hit certain benchmarks and they have well and truly done that.”
Geelong’s replacement for the suspended Tom Hawkins is less certain, with several options on the table.
“We don’t have a player that’s exactly the same as Hawkins, so we won’t follow exactly the same format,” Scott said.
