Oldham will be without Italian defender Matteo Lanzoni for their Sky Bet League Two clash with Carlisle.
The 25-year-old has yet to feature this month due to a hamstring strain and boss Lee Johnson revealed that he has returned to his native Italy to see a specialist.
There is better news elsewhere across the back four for Johnson, though, as Genseric Kusunga and James Tarkowski will be available despite concerns.
Kusunga came off with cramp in the 2-0 win over Preston in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy last week but Johnson attributed that to a lack of match fitness, while Tarkowski has been back in training following a bout of illness.
