Carlisle striker Jason Price could be handed a late fitness test ahead of the home clash with Oldham.

Price, on loan from Millwall, missed the midweek defeat to Leeds due to a hamstring strain but hopes to return to full training in time.

Manager Greg Abbott has no new injury or suspension problems but none of his long-term absentees are likely to return.

Abbott must decide whether to hand defender David Raven his first start in over six months after the 25-year-old replaced teenager Tom Aldred in the second half against Leeds.

Raven (hip) made his first appearance since October on Tuesday night while Aldred, 19, broke into the first team in December.

Fellow defenders Danny Livesey (hamstring) and Peter Murphy (knock) are still struggling and Kevan Hurst (knee), Joe Anyinsah (double hernia) and Andy Cook (foot) all remain sidelined.

Oldham boss Dave Penney has hinted he could make tactical changes.

Penney is hoping to play a more attacking formation as he looks to guide the Latics to a vital three points that would pull them further clear of trouble.

Left-back Joe Jacobson had surgery to cure a pelvic problem on Thursday and could return in three weeks.

But the club are unlikely to rush the 23-year-old, who underwent a bi-lateral inguinal release in his groin areas, back before the end of the season as they want him fully fit for next term.

On-loan Huddersfield midfielder Jim Goodwin, who has missed the last 13 matches, will be hoping to return before the end of the season as he closes in on full fitness but may not be risked by Penney.

But influential winger Chris Taylor continues to struggle with a thigh problem and will not play again this season.
