An ankle injury forced Kearns off late on in the 4-2 victory at NottsCounty last Saturday but the midfielder has trained this week and has put the problem behind him.
An unchanged team would mean a place in the starting XI for forward Lee Tomlin, who this week submitted a written transfer request which was immediately rejected by the club.
Ahead of the game Ferguson, who last season tried to sign Oldham's former Everton forward Jose Baxter, said: "Oldham have two good strikers in Charlie McDonald and Adam Rooney, and Jose Baxter is well known to us as well. I saw a lot of him when I was in charge of Preston because we played Everton quite a bit in the reserve league."
