Oldham Roundup

Oldham Roundup

We'll start with injury news, and then we have cup information.

Connor Brown is again a fresh injury worry for Oldham. The right back made a cameo in the game against Notts County in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy where we won five one and followed that up with a 45 minute run out in a youth team friendly, but has now suffered a setback after already having had two and a half months on the sidelines.

He caught a whack on his knee in that game, and it has filled with fluid and whilst it's hoped it's not seriously, there is no way the club will rush him back and as of yet there is no time scale on his returned.

Following the Wolves win, Christian Montano and David Mellor both limped out of the game.

Montano, already suffering with back problem, jarred his knee, and Mellor suffered cramp after recovering from a sickness bug.

Kirk Millar has also returned to the club following international duty with a calf injury that he sustained in Northern Ireland's U21 game last Tuesday.

All players remain doubts at this stage for this weekend's action.

James Tarkowski has said he couldn't have thought of a better way to celebrate his 21st birthday other than helping to secure a win over Wolves in the FA Cup first round replay in midweek.

Describing the tie as probably the hardest of the round, Tarks said he was delighted with the performance of the boys and despite the joy at progressing to the next round, every one was a little disappointed that we conceded the goal, but such is life, we won.

His aim is to now take that into the league and get us on a run there.
