Oldham Athletic are looking to increase capacity at Boundary Park for their fourth-round FA Cup tie against Liverpool.

The League One side face the seven-time FA Cup winners on January 26 and are considering constructing a temporary 3,000-seater stand to boost revenues.

Club representatives are meeting local council officials and health and safety officers on Monday in order to propose the idea of expanding upon Boundary Park's 10,000 capacity.

Oldham are yet to sell more than 6,000 tickets for any home game this season but expect a full house for the visit of Liverpool.

Paul Dickov's side booked their place in the fourth-round by beating Nottingham Forest 3-2 at the City Ground, while Liverpool progressed after beating Conference Premier side Mansfield 2-1.

The two sides met at Anfield in last season's competition, with Liverpool beating the Latics 5-1.
