Oldham boss Paul Dickov will be without the services of Reuben Hazell and club captain Sean Gregan for the visit of Leyton Orient.
Hazell received his fifth yellow card of the season during the 0-0 draw with Sheffield Wednesday and will serve a one-match-ban, while Gregan remains sidelined with a knee injury and is yet to return to training, meaning Jason Jarrett is likely to fill the void in the heart of the defence.
Warren Feeney is also a doubt after failing to recover from an ankle injury as quickly as expected and will undergo a scan to assess the extent of the problem.
Chris Taylor is likely to continue in a supporting role to Oumare Tounkara up front with Dean Kelly on the bench.
Dickov is unlikely to involve himself in the squad just yet as he continues to build up his fitness in training.
Leyton Orient will be unchanged for the trip.
The Os have collected four points from games against Brentford and Walsall with their settled line-up and boss Russell Slade has no fresh injury worries.
French striker Jonathan Tehoue remains the only absentee having been sidelined for the past three weeks with an ankle problem.
Tottenham loanee Paul-Jose M'Poku made his debut as a substitute in the goalless draw against Walsall but despite a lively cameo on the left wing he will start on the bench once more.
Orient skipper Stephen Dawson comes up against Latics manager Paul Dickov, who was once his team-mate at Leicester.
The Os have not won in the league at Boundary Park in 30 years.
