Injuries for Oldham pair

Oldham Athletic have new injury problems after central defender Stefan Stam and on-loan goalkeeper Michael Poke picked up fresh knocks.
Dutchman Stam, who joined The Latics back in February, was forced to pull out of training with a hamstring injury last week.
The former PSV Eindhoven stopper missed Sunday's 2-1 defeat at Southend United and there are fears the 25-year-old will be sidelined for up to six weeks.
The news is a blow to Boundary Park boss Ronnie Moore, as three other centre backs in Danny Hall, Chris Swailes and Will Haining are also sidelined with injuries.
Another player on the casualty list is Southampton keeper Poke after the custodian suffered a hairline fracture to the index finger of his left hand in training last week.
The 19-year-old will be out for up to four weeks and brings a premature end to his loan spell with the League One club.
