Oldham boss Dino Maamria could hand a start to new signing Zachary Dearnley in their Sky Bet League Two clash with Carlisle.
Dearnley has re-signed for the club on a short-term deal after a spell on loan from Manchester United last season and was an unused substitute in Tuesday’s draw at Stevenage.
Goalkeeper Gary Woods is expected to miss out after suffering a shoulder injury in the draw with Stevenage on Tuesday night, with Zeus De La Paz expected to deputise.
Defender Jamie Stott plus midfielders Chris McCann and Johan Branger-Engone remain Oldham’s only long-term absentees.
Carlisle head coach Chris Beech has no fresh injuries to deal with.
Beech could hand a debut to striker Joshua Kayode, who joined on loan from Rotherham this week.
Mo Sagaf returned to the matchday squad in their midweek FA Cup replay against Cardiff, although he didn’t feature.
Defender Aaron Hayden is also available once again after serving his one-match suspension.
