Oldham boss Lee Johnson could be forced into a defensive reshuffle for the trip to Swindon.
The Latics manager looks set to have two different defenders from the four used against Wolves in midweek with James Tarkowski set to join Brentford and Genseric Kusunga succumbed to a hamstring injury again.
That could mean a full debut for Adam Lockwood, who made his first appearance off the bench in Tuesday's 3-0 loss.
David Worrall is likely to come back into the equation as he missed the Wolves game with Johnson exercising caution over the groin problem which has kept him out for most of the season, while fellow midfielder James Wesolowski is a doubt with a shoulder problem. New signing Rhys Turner could be involved.
Swindon boss Mark Cooper will be without midfielder Alex Pritchard.
The on-loan Tottenham man picked up his 10th yellow card of the season last time out and will begin a two-match suspension.
Midfielder Ryan Mason missed the 1-1 draw with Walsall in midweek after a muscle spasm forced him off in the first half of last weekend's victory over Shrewsbury. He will be assessed ahead of kick-off.
Cooper will also check on defender Jay McEveley, who is struggling with a knee injury.
