Richmond star midfielder Dustin Martin is battling groin soreness but should be fit to play Melbourne on Monday.

Tigers captain Trent Cotchin spoke to the media today and confirmed Martin went for scans on Wednesday.

Martin had an uncharacteristic quiet game against Brisbane last Sunday only gathering 16 disposals in a dominant display from the Tigers.

"I think he'll come up fine, he'll train on the weekend and it's one of those ones that you wait and see how it plays out.

"I don't think it's anything too significant … it's just a time thing" said Cotchin. 

Cotchin says that Martin was restricted to light duties this week but is expected to line up against the Demons on Monday.

The skipper also stated the forward Ben Griffiths could be in line for a recall after missing the past two weeks with concussion.
