Obita initially joined Latics on January transfer deadline day and his emergency youth loan with the League One strugglers now runs until April 1.

The 19-year-old has made four starts and two substitute appearances in all competitions and opened the scoring in Oldham's 2-2 draw with Everton in the fifth round of the FA Cup at Boundary Park.

Meanwhile, fellow loanee Lee Barnard has resumed training following a hamstring scare.

The Southampton forward, who has scored twice in six games for Latics, missed Saturday's defeat to Sheffield United with the problem but was given the all-clear following a precautionary scan.

Another Oldham player on the mend is Cristian Montano. The winger is set for his first action since suffering a torn thigh muscle at Scunthorpe on New Year's Day in a Tuesday afternoon reserve match against Bury.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
