Oldham have been boosted by the news that the hamstring injury sustained by Chris Taylor against Bournemouth is not serious.
Taylor was forced off after just 20 minutes of the goalless draw on the south coast on Saturday.
Latics boss Paul Dickov told the club's official website: "Chris felt his hamstring and thankfully it has not gone. It is not a pull or a tear.
"He felt it tighten and cramp up and he did the right thing. Had he carried on, there was the possibility he might have made it worse and then he would have been out for a lot longer."
