Oldham boss Paul Dickov could have a full-strength squad at his disposal for the home clash with fellow strugglers Tranmere.

Winger Chris Taylor has missed the last two matches because of mumps but has returned to training this week and is set to be passed fit.

Midfielder Filipe Morais, who was also absent for the past two games, is back in light training following knee and hamstring injuries.

Defender Andy Todd is also expected to be available after missing the last two matches through a knee injury and Jean-Yves M'voto is making a speedy recovery from a twisted ankle sustained at Colchester.

Dickov could pitch himself into action for the first time since September as the Latics bid to end an 11-match winless streak.

Tranmere were dealt a blow after Lateef Elford-Alliyu was ruled out for the rest of the season.

The rookie West Brom winger, who has been on loan at Prenton Park since December, is nursing a knee injury and will miss the final 10 games of the campaign.

Manager Les Parry was looking to make one last loan signing to cover for Elford-Alliyu's loss but failed to seal a deal before Thursday`s 5pm deadline.

Elsewhere, Rovers` injury problems have begun to ease and Parry will be reluctant to make changes following last weekend`s 1-0 home win over Colchester.

The result ended a seven-match winless streak and Parry said: "We are getting the right kind of response from the players."
