Harry Forrester returns to the Brentford team for the visit of Oldham.

The former Aston Villa youngster climbed off the bench to score the Bees' equaliser in the 2-2 draw at Bournemouth on Tuesday night and boss Uwe Rosler has confirmed he will be back in the starting line-up.

Fellow midfielder Adam Forshaw has been playing despite a minor abdonimal complaint recently but completed the full 90 minutes in midweek and is fine.

Rosler had no goalkeeper on the bench at Dean Court as Richard Lee and Antoine Gounet were injured but the latter is expected to return.

Rosler has an otherwise fully-fit squad and will choose two from Farid El Alagui, Clayton Donaldson and Paul Hayes to start in attack.

Paul Dickov has the luxury of a full squad to choose from as Oldham look to make it four League One games unbeaten.

Connor Brown is back from a three-match suspension but is unlikely to dislodge on-loan Manchester City defender Reece Wabara at right-back.

Dean Bouzanis replaced Alex Cisak in goal for Tuesday night's 1-1 draw with Scunthorpe and is expected to keep his place.

In attack Dickov has an impressive selection of options. In midweek Matt Smith was given the nod alongside Matt Derbyshire, who scored his second goal in as many Latics appearances.

That meant Robbie Simpson dropped to the bench alongside Jose Baxter, who was unable to win a starting berth despite marking his Oldham debut with a late leveller against Notts County last weekend.

Tom Adeyemi, who spent last season on loan at Boundary Park, is likely to come up against his former club in the Bees midfield.
