Oldham striker Warren Feeney looks certain to be passed fit for the trip to Huddersfield.
Feeney pulled out of Wednesday's Carling Nations Cup international between Northern Ireland and Scotland through an ankle problem.
The Ulsterman sustained the injury in training on Tuesday but Latics manager Paul Dickov revealed the problem is not serious.
Dickov said: "Warren didn't want to go and play for his country, aggravate the injury and not be available for us."
Dickov has no other major concerns as his side look to bounce back from the disappointment of conceding a last-minute equaliser in last weekend's 1-1 draw at home to Dagenham.
Dickov said: "We're unbeaten in six and we believe we are a good side."
