Oldham boss Dave Penney will be without Krisztian Timar for the home clash with Millwall.

The on-loan Plymouth defender succumbed to a hamstring injury in Wednesday's goalless draw at home to fellow strugglers Tranmere.

He will play no part against the Lions but midfielder Joe Colbeck could potentially return after a recent injury.

However, Penney remains without the services of a quintet of injured players in Kelvin Lomax, Lewis Alessandra, Jon Worthington, Rob Purdie and Andy Holdsworth.

Oldham were laboured against Tranmere in midweek and Penney accepts his side must improve against Millwall.

The Boundary Park boss said: "I'm sure we'll be better at the weekend against Millwall. We'll have to play better than we did against Tranmere to get something, that's for sure."

Neil Harris could return to the Millwall starting line-up.

The Lions' record goalscorer had been sidelined since mid-November with a back injury but made a surprise appearance as a substitute during last weekend's 1-1 draw with Southampton.

With a full week of training behind him Harris could now partner Steve Morison in attack.

Millwall are still without fellow frontman Gary Alexander, who was this week ruled out for three months after a heel operation.

Midfielder Marc Laird faces a late check on a calf injury but defender Andy Frampton is not expected to recover from his calf strain in time.

Ipswich loanee Liam Trotter keeps his place in midfield after a debut goal against Saints.
