Oldham boss Paul Dickov will be without a trio of players on international duty for the trip to Brentford.
The players ruled out are Warren Feeney, Kirk Millar and Rodrigue Dikaba, who are on duty with Northern Ireland, Northern Ireland Under-19s and DR Congo respectively.
The Latics could have called off the game at Griffin Park but Dickov says that would have been unfair on fans who had booked weekends in London.
He also said a rearranged game on a Tuesday night would have caused further inconvenience.
Reuben Hazell is back after serving a one-match ban while Cedric Evina, an 18-year-old left-back signed from Arsenal on a month's loan this week, is named in the squad for the first time.
