Oldham boss Paul Dickov has been dealt an injury blow with news Jean Yves Mvoto has suffered ankle ligament damage.

The centre-back, on season-long loan from Sunderland, sustained the injury during the 2-1 defeat against rivals Rochdale on Monday and left the pitch on a stretcher.

The full extent of the injury is unknown at this stage as severe swelling continues to delay the diagnosis.
