Oldham defender Zander Diamond is hoping he can maintain a starting position after recovering from a hip injury.
The former Aberdeen centre-back had been on the bench for four games before marking his return to the side with a goal in the weekend defeat to Yeovil and he is hoping to make the spot his own for the rest of the campaign.
"It was good to get 90 minutes under my belt, albeit ending in defeat," he told the club's official website. "The opportunity came to return and I hope I took it with both hands. Hopefully, I can stay in the team for the remainder of the season."
Diamond's commitment to the Latics could not be questioned after a clash of heads left him with a cut above his eye which required three stitches. His goal capped off an eventful return to the side but Diamond is aware that a lack of goals is holding back Paul Dickov's side.
"It's not the first war wound and it won't be the last. You have to put your neck and body on the line."
"It was frustrating to come away with one goal when we could easily have had three or four, but it seems the same old story," he added.
