Oldham pair Dean Furman and Paul Black could be in the squad for Monday night's home clash with MK Dons.

Skipper and midfielder Furman has made only two appearances this season due to a knee problem, while defender Black has been sidelined for a month with a groin injury.

Both players returned to full training this week and have suffered no ill-effects, so could be named among the substitutes.

Winger Filipe Morais is expected to retain his place in the side after making his first start since early September in the midweek Johnstone's Paint Trophy win at Scunthorpe.

Manager Paul Dickov is hoping defender Jean-Yves M'voto can shake off the ankle injury that has kept him out of the last two matches.

The Latics are looking to build on their midweek win having lost their last two league matches.

MK Dons midfielder Stephen Gleeson is back in contention following suspension.

Gleeson missed last week's home win over Notts County due to a one-game ban after reaching five yellow cards and manager Karl Robinson must decide whether to recall him to the starting line-up.

Defender Adam Smith, on loan from Tottenham, is on international duty with England's Under-21s and goalkeeper Ian McLoughlin is in the Republic of Ireland Under-21 squad.

Strikers Jabo Ibehre (hamstring) and Charlie MacDonald (thigh) remain sidelined and midfielder Jay O'Shea (ankle) is not ready to return to action.

The Dons know a win would send them back into second spot.
