Oldham boss Paul Dickov is unlikely to make any changes to his side for the home clash with Brentford.
The Latics have no new injury or suspension concerns and are expected to keep faith with the same side that won 2-0 at Plymouth last Saturday.
Dickov is still trying to secure the services of Aidy White back on loan from Leeds following his spell at Boundary Park earlier in the campaign.
Rookie Oldham goalkeeper Josh Ollerenshaw has joined Salford City on a one-month loan deal.
Ollerenshaw, 20, spent a one-month loan at Mossley earlier in the campaign.
Dickov said: "One thing I have got - regardless of win lose or draw - is a young group of boys who are willing to run their socks off for me."
Charlie MacDonald and Karleigh Osborne should return for Brentford.
Striker MacDonald missed Monday night's draw against Exeter as a precaution due to a thigh injury while centre-half Osborne failed a late fitness test on his hamstring problem.
But both are expected to shake off the injuries in time for the weekend.
Midfielder Owain Tudur Jones could come into the side after joining on a month-long loan from Norwich.
Sam Saunders remains on the sidelines with hamstring trouble but he has targeted a return against Yeovil at the end of the month.
Fellow winger Sam Wood is still missing with a broken arm and striker Carl Cort is a long-term absentee with an Achilles problem.
Cort had been pencilled in for a return in January but manager Andy Scott this week revealed he is nowhere near a comeback.
