FA Cup: Giant-killers Oldham host Everton looking to take another Merseyside scalp

David Moyes: Aiming to avoid a giant-killing at Boundary Park

David Moyes: Aiming to avoid a giant-killing at Boundary Park

Giant-killers Oldham host Everton on Saturday evening looking to take another Merseyside FA Cup scalp in their fifth round clash.

The League One Latics shocked Liverpool 3-2 at Boundary Park last month, with Matt Smith notching a first-half brace in the famous win.

Despite that victory, boss Paul Dickov has since departed the relegation-threatened club, with Tony Philliskirk in caretaker charge for this visit of the Toffees.

Everton go into this clash on the back of a 2-0 loss at Manchester United last Sunday.

That defeat ended a seven-game league and cup undefeated run for David Moyes' side, which included a 2-1 win at Bolton in the last round.

FA Cup hero Smith could return from a shoulder problem sustained against the Reds having returned to training on Thursday.

Fellow forward Robbie Simpson has also made his comeback from a hamstring injury and, if he can prove his fitness, may be in contention.

Oldham have also been boosted by the availability of their loanees, with Reading midfielder Jordan Obita and strikers Chris Iwelumo and Lee Barnard, from Watford and Southampton respectively, getting the go-ahead to feature.

Everton Badge Everton

Everton boss Moyes should have Sylvain Distin fit again after the defender pulled out of Sunday's defeat at Manchester United just before kick-off through illness.

Fellow defender Tony Hibbert is definitely out, while the game looks set to come too soon for right-back Seamus Coleman who has recently been sidelined with a thigh injury.

Striker Victor Anichebe is a doubt with a knock sustained at Old Trafford that saw him substituted just before the hour.
