James Dayton is an injury doubt for Oldham ahead of their Johnstone's Paint Trophy semi-final tie against Chesterfield.

Dayton limped out of the 1-1 draw with Mansfield on Saturday with an ankle problem. The winger will be assessed but Latics boss Lee Johnson is not optimistic.

Johnson is, however, more hopeful about James Wesolowski's chances of playing against the Spireites. The Australian midfielder missed the second-round tie against the Stags because of a hamstring strain.

At the weekend Johnson rated Wesolowski's chance of playing on Tuesday night as 70/30 against, but at his pre-match press conference on Monday those prospects had improved to 50/50.

Liam Cooper, meanwhile, comes back into the reckoning for Chesterfield against Oldham but the Spireites will be without six players for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Northern Area semi-final at Boundary Park.

Centre-half Cooper returns after serving a one-match suspension on Saturday as Paul Cook's side lost 3-1 at home to fellow League Two promotion hopefuls Southend in the FA Cup.

Striker Armand Gnanduillet and winger Gary Roberts (hamstring) suffered injuries during the second round tie against the Shrimpers, with Roberts facing around six weeks out.

Jay O'Shea is ill and fellow midfielder Callum McFadzean, on loan from Sheffield United, is ineligible having already featured in the competition, while full-back Nathan Smith (ankle) and midfielder Sam Morsy (knee) remain long-term absentees.
