Dickov looks ahead with line-up

Manager Paul Dickov will send out an Oldham side for the final-day visit of play-off chasing Carlisle with an eye on next season.

Kirk Millar and Keanu Marsh-Brown were restored to the starting XI for last weekend's goalless draw with Bury and are expected to be retained.

Top scorer Shefki Kuqi was absent from the matchday squad against the Shakers and, with his contract up in the summer, there will be much intrigue over whether the veteran Finn is named to face Greg Abbott's side.

Kieran Lee may play his last game for Latics, although a new contract remains on the table for the highly-rated full-back.

Fellow defenders Zander Diamond and Paul Black will definitely not feature having been released from their contracts this week.

Dickov will be happy to draw a line under a trying campaign, with Oldham heading into their season finale on a run of eight games without victory, drawing their last three.
