Oldham can welcome back captain Dean Furman and vice-captain James Wesolowski to their side as they prepare to take on rock-bottom Hartlepool.
The central midfield duo both missed Saturday's 4-1 defeat at Bournemouth through suspension, after picking up five bookings, but are ready to make an immediate return to manager Paul Dickov's starting line-up.
Robbie Simpson and Youssuf M'Changama came in to replace the unavailable pair, but are not likely to keep their places after being substituted in a dismal second-half performance for the Latics.
Left-back Jonathan Grounds will not feature at Victoria Park after he picked up his fifth yellow card of the season against the Cherries.
Connor Brown and Reece Wabara will battle to replace Grounds, with David Mellor a third option after returning from a loan spell at Chorley.
Dickov's men have slipped into the bottom four after three defeats on the bounce and will be looking for a vital win against John Hughes' Pools.
