Crawley will still be without Gary Alexander for the visit of Oldham.

Veteran striker Alexander completes a three-match ban for the red card he received in the recent win over Gillingham.

Emile Sinclair scored on his full debut in the 1-1 draw with Colchester last Saturday and is set to keep his place in attack alongside either Billy Clarke or Jamie Proctor.

Boss Richie Barker has an otherwise full-strength squad available after winger Luke Rooney recovered from illness in time to take his place on the bench last weekend.

Oldham will make a decision on winger Cristian Montano close to kick-off when they travel to Crawley in Sky Bet League One.

The 21-year-old underwent surgery to have a cyst drained and Latics will keep an eye on the wound before the clash.

Defensive duo Jonathan Grounds and Genseric Kusunga could bolster boss Lee Johnson's options. Ex-Middlesbrough trainee Grounds sustained a dead leg in the draw with Crewe last weekend but should be fine while Kusunga, formerly of Swiss club Basle, is rated 50-50 with a hamstring strain.

Latics, who continue to be missing full-back Connor Brown (knee) and suspended midfielder David Mellor, have not won in four league games and Johnson suggested midfielder Carl Winchester may be considered as one of the changes he makes after impressing for the reserves in midweek.
