Brian Wilson returns from suspension for Oldham, but Adam Lockwood will miss out when MK Dons are the visitors to SportsDirect.com Park.
Wilson is back having served his ban following his dismissal at Yeovil and strengthens a defence which is missing Lockwood due to his red card against Barnsley on Saturday.
Interim manager Dean Holden’s options are severely limited by the injuries to seven first-team players who show no sign of returning any time soon.
Hamstring injuries rule out Amari Morgan-Smith, Jacob Mellis, George Elokobi and Joseph Mills, while Liam Kelly (calf), Dominic Poleon (shoulder) and James Wilson (calf) are missing too.
Automatic promotion hopefuls MK Dons are looking to halt a four-game winless run but they will have to do so without the suspended Darren Potter.
Potter received his 10th yellow card of the season during the draw at Walsall on Saturday and the midfielder must now serve a two-match ban.
Back-up goalkeeper Ian McLoughlin (dead leg) could return on the bench at SportsDirect.com Park while Joe Walsh will be hoping to be back in the matchday squad after the defender was overlooked at the weekend.
Teenage midfielder Dele Alli is nearing a return from the ankle injury he suffered a month ago but Tuesday night’s game could come too soon for the Tottenham loanee.
