Lee Johnson could name an unchanged side once more when he takes charge of Oldham for the fourth time against Carlisle.

Latics head into the the clash unbeaten in three matches, following up Johnson's debut win over Hartlepool with back-to-back draws against Swindon and Colchester.

Lee Croft could possibly force a re-think of his manager's plans but the on-loan Derby wideman is expected to recover from an impact injury sustained versus the U's on Easter Monday.

Dean Bouzanis is expected to see off the challenge from Alex Cisak to keep his place in goal having been at fault for Drey Wright's 20th-minute opener last time out.

Jordan Obita will not be involved after the on-loan winger returned to parent club Reading earlier this week.

Carlisle travel to Boundary Park without the suspended Sean O'Hanlon.

The defender was sent off 15 minutes from time after receiving two yellow cards during the Cumbrians' goalless draw at Bramall Lane on Easter Monday.

He now serves a one-match ban that could allow Peter Murphy to come into the side to partner Danny Livesey in defence.

Boss Greg Abbott will have Matty Robson back in the squad after the winger passed an early assessment on the back injury that forced him to miss the draw with Sheffield United.

Robson will compete with Andy Welsh for a start on the left side of the midfield.

Left-back Chris Chantler will not feature again this season due to an ankle problem, but Abbott has no fresh injury concerns.
