Sky Bet League Two bottom club Stevenage have no fresh injury concerns as they prepare to welcome former manager Dino Maamria back to the Lamex Stadium with his Oldham side on Tuesday night.
Boro lost 1-0 at home to Port Vale over the weekend and now sit 24th in the table having taken just two wins from their 26 league games so far this season.
Current boss Graham Westley was forced to run the final five miles to the game on Saturday after being stuck in traffic, but he will now be hoping to get his side out of a jam.
While Westley has no new injury worries, captain Scott Cuthbert (hamstring) remains sidelined and Tom Soares is still banned.
Maamria returns to Hertfordshire having been sacked by Stevenage in September before taking the reins at Oldham soon after.
Latics will be able to call on captain David Wheater following a successful appeal against his late red card in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Macclesfield.
Oldham had looked on course to end a run of three straight defeats with a win, only for Wheater to be controversially sent off for conceding a last-gasp penalty.
Defender Tomas Egert returned to the bench having missed two games following a head injury, while Jamie Stott (hamstring) remains sidelined.
