Oldham boss Paul Dickov could name an unchanged side for the trip to Southampton.
Midfielder Andy Holdsworth, who would not have commanded a place in the starting line-up, is ruled out through a shin injury.
He had been complaining of pain in the last week, although scans have revealed no stress fracture as was feared.
The Latics this week released full-back Rodrigue Dikaba after less than two months at the club.
The 24-year-old defender, who played just twice for the Latics, was injured on international duty with DR Congo but failed to return to Boundary Park.
Dickov has no other new injury or suspension concerns but veteran defender Sean Gregan, 36, has joined Fleetwood Town on a three-month loan deal.
