Derbyshire: Set to start for the Latics

Oldham are at full strength for the match.

Boss Paul Dickov looks set to hand Everton loanee Jose Baxter his first start for the Latics.

The 20-year-old, who scored on his debut after coming off the bench against Notts County earlier this month, can play in midfield or up front.

Fellow loan signing Matt Derbyshire, who has scored twice in three appearances since joining from Nottingham Forest, is likely to partner Cristian Montano in attack once more.

The Boundary Park outfit are looking to end a three-game winless run in the league which has seen them drop to 19th in the table, just three points above this weekend's visitors.

Coventry welcome back David McGoldrick and Conor Henderson as they look to end their long wait for a first league win of the season.

Striker McGoldrick and midfielder Henderson were both ineligible for Wednesday night's 6-1 Capital One Cup defeat at Arsenal.

The result may have been convincing but City - despite falling to a fifth successive defeat - can take heart from a creditable performance against a Gunners side littered with star quality.

James Bailey, Franck Moussa and Jamie Reckord all made their full debuts and could well again start at Boundary Park.

Midfielder Steven Jennings will again be assessed having missed out in midweek with the injury sustained in last weekend's loss to Carlisle.
