Duo released by Latics
Oldham have terminated the contracts of Rob Purdie and Greg Fleming ahead of the home clash with Hartlepool.
Midfielder Purdie endured an injury-plagued 18 months at Boundary Park and did not make a single first-team appearance.
Goalkeeper Fleming has failed to establish himself with the Latics following his arrival in the summer of 2008.
Northern Ireland striker Warren Feeney, who hurt his ankle against Brentford on January 22, has returned to training and could feature against Mick Wadsworth's side.
New signing Reuben Reid is in line for his first start after he came on as a late substitute in Saturday's 2-2 draw at Carlisle.
Striker Reid joined Paul Dickov's promotion hopefuls from West Brom last week on a free transfer.
Hartlepool first-team coach Mick Wadsworth has no new injury or suspension worries to contend with.
Wadsworth's squad have benefited from having no game at the weekend due to their exit from the FA Cup with Scott Flinders returning to the first-team fold.
Goalkeeper Flinders, who has spent four months on the sidelines nursing a ruptured finger, is set to return to Wadsworth's starting line-up replacing Jake Kean.
Kean has now returned to parent club Blackburn despite impressing during his time at Victoria Park.
Wadsworth has the option of retaining on-loan Newcastle striker Ryan Donaldson after he made his debut in the Pools' draw with Notts County or recalling James Brown, who occupied the bench against Paul Ince's side.
Latics hammer Pools
Oldham showed their play-off credentials with an emphatic home 4-0 win against Hartlepool.
Paul Dickov's side had far too much quality for the visitors, who folded tamely and could have lost by an even bigger margin.
Oldham went ahead after just seven minutes as Aidan White found the roof of the net from six yards after Oumare Tounkara's initial shot was saved by Scott Flinders.
Hartlepool's first chance came on 39 minutes when Sam Collins headed just wide but Oldham doubled their lead just after half-time.
Hartlepool defender Peter Hartley lost possession trying to play a back pass and, after Filipe Morais was denied by a goalline clearance, Chris Taylor drilled in from eight yards.
Full-back Cedric Evina bagged Oldham's third on 69 minutes, hammering home an explosive angled shot after being picked up by Dale Stephens.
Substitute Reuben Reid had the last word when he notched his first Oldham goal with a close range header from Evina's cross.
