Football - Tark back for Latics

James Tarkowski will be back in Oldham's squad against Bristol City, despite leaving the club at the end of the January transfer window.

PA Sport Report

The 21-year-old central defender departed for Sky Bet League One rivals Brentford but surprisingly agreed terms on a 28-day loan to rejoin Latics when the window reopens on Friday.

Oldham signed non-league striker Rhys Turner from Stockport last month but boss Lee Johnson is not ready to risk him yet because the player recently suffered a hamstring tear.

Johnson also revealed unnamed members of his squad are carrying minor knocks while midfielder David Worrall could drop out again after only recently returning from a long-term groin problem.
