Bournemouth boss Lee Bradbury will add left-back Warren Cummings to his squad for the clash with Oldham.
Cummings has missed the last two matches after suffering with laryngitis but will be back on the bench.
Rookie forward Danny Ings was dropped to the bench against Dagenham on Saturday after starting the previous 11 matches, with Joe Partington taking his spot, and it remains to be seen if Ings will be recalled.
Young striker Lyle Taylor has been recalled from his loan spell at Lewes and will compete with Jayden Stockley for a place among the substitutes.
Goalkeeper Jon Stewart took part in training with West Ham this week but should return to the Cherries in time to resume his role as back-up to number one Shwan Jalal.
Forward duo Ben Williams and Steve Lovell (both ankle) remain sidelined, with Williams expected to miss another two weeks, while Lovell is still some way from full fitness. Midfielder Mark Molesley remains out with an ankle problem, and despite playing 90 minutes for the reserves on Tuesday he will not be fit enough for a return to first-team action for another 10 days.
Oldham boss Paul Dickov is boosted by the return of captain Reuben Hazell.
The defender is back in the squad after missing the last three games due a two-match suspension and a back strain which forced him to out of last Saturday`s 5-0 home humiliation to Peterborough.
Midfielder Dean Furman completes a two-match ban and, thus, remains unavailable. Meanwhile, a virus has swept through Boundary Park this week, meaning other players could miss out.
However, Dickov does not expect it to rule any of his players out of action as the Latics bid to bounce back from last weekend`s horror show.
Dickov said: "We have already proved this season we are capable to going on an unbeaten run and we need to do that again."
