Richmond fans can expect plenty of speed and excitement from AFL debutant Oleg Markov, his teammate Anthony Miles says.

The 20-year-old South Australian is the son of champion pole vaulter Dimitri Markov and Miles says his athleticism will be a real asset against the Western Bulldogs on Saturday night.

"He's a really exciting prospect and probably didn't expect he'd get a game this year, he's so raw ... he's got a lot of pace and raw excitement," Miles said on Friday.
