Gregan: Set for Oldham return
Oldham will aim to maintain their play-off push when they visit Swindon on Saturday.
The Latics have lost just once in their last six games to move to within four points of the top six with five games remaining.
Swindon had play-off aspirations of their own when they drew 2-2 at Oldham in February, with the two sides joint-12th in League One, but a run of just one win in 10 has seen the Robins slip down the table.
Only a wretched run-in would see Maurice Malpas' men in trouble as they are still nine points clear of the drop zone, although striker Barry Corr (shoulder) and midfielder Christian Roberts (knee) will miss the rest of the season.
Pat Kanyuka (thigh) may also be out until the summer, while fellow defender Miguel Comminges serves the first of a two-game ban for 10 bookings, so Jack Smith is expected to return at right-back.
Oldham's play-off hopes are set to be boosted by the long-awaited return of Sean Gregan at the County Ground.
The veteran has recovered from a torn Achilles and is expected to cover in midfield as Hull's David Livermore chose not to extend his loan stay at Boundary Park, while Gary McDonald and JP Kalala are still sidelined by injury.
