The 21-year-old was withdrawn in the second half of Latics' 3-1 victory over Port Vale last Saturday and his replacement that afternoon, Cliff Byrne, may slot in. Carl Winchester, another right-back, could be available for the first time this season after returning to full training following his knee injury.
Striker Charlie MacDonald was absent against Vale due to a dead leg but should feature while Danny Philliskirk, son of Oldham's academy manager Tony, is in line for his debut after penning a two-year deal on Wednesday.
Forward Jose Baxter will not be involved after joining Sheffield United on Thursday.
