Jordan Obita: Remains at Boundary Park

Obita initially joined Latics on January transfer deadline day and his emergency youth loan with the League One strugglers now runs until April 1.

The 19-year-old has made four starts and two substitute appearances in all competitions and opened the scoring in Oldham's 2-2 draw with Everton in the fifth round of the FA Cup at Boundary Park.

Meanwhile, fellow loanee Lee Barnard has resumed training following a hamstring scare.

The Southampton forward, who has scored twice in six games for Latics, missed Saturday's defeat to Sheffield United with the problem but was given the all-clear following a precautionary scan.

Another Oldham player on the mend is Cristian Montano. The winger is set for his first action since suffering a torn thigh muscle at Scunthorpe on New Year's Day in a Tuesday afternoon reserve match against Bury.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
