Football - Byrom missing for Latics

Oldham will be without on-loan midfielder Joel Byrom at promotion-chasing Leyton Orient.

PA Sport Report

The 27-year-old has had to go back to parent club Preston after pulling his hamstring, which forced him to miss Saturday's crucial win over Stevenage, but boss Lee Johnson is hopeful he can still return to Boundary Park for the season's final few matches.

Captain Korey Smith played 90 minutes at the weekend and his knee problem needs to be managed while David Worrall, who started against Stevenage, needs similar conditioning work following a long-term groin injury.

Centre-back Genseric Kusunga has had a minor operation which is unrelated to his thigh injury and should be back training within the next 10 days. Midfielder Anton Rodgers also remains out with a knee problem.
