Stockport County Vs Oldham Athletic, Tue 2 Feb 2010

Published Add your comment

Stockport boss Gary Ablett is boosted by the return of striker Jabo Ibehre for the home clash with Oldham.

Ibehre is available again after serving a two-match ban, but defender Jonny Mullins again looks set to miss out.

Mullins sustained a knee injury in last Tuesday's 1-1 draw at home to Brighton and subsequently missed the 2-0 defeat at Southampton on Saturday.

Mat Sadler from Watford and George Donnelly from Plymouth joined County on loan last week and played against Saints.

They could now make their home bows as Ablett's men bid to arrest a 15-match winless streak in League One.

Ablett said: "I knew this job was going to be difficult when I came here and it is getting tougher."

On-loan striker Jason Price could make his Oldham debut.

The 32-year-old, who has scored 79 goals in 334 appearances during a much-travelled career, arrived at Boundary Park on a month`s loan from Millwall on Monday and could be thrust straight into the action at Edgeley Park.

The Latics have been further boosted after after Huddersfield midfielder Jim Goodwin agreed to stay at the club for the remainder of the campaign.

Goodwin, 28, has struggled to nail down a regular place at the Galpharm Stadium this season and joined Dave Penney's men on loan at the start of January.

His continued availability is a major boost to Penney as Jon Worthington, Andy Holdsworth, Rob Purdie and Lewis Alessandra all remain sidelined through injury.
