Sunday, December 1

Oldham (14) v Bradford (6)

Oldham boss Lee Johnson confirmed Cristian Montano (knee), Kirk Millar (ankle and calf) and Edijs Joksts (back) are all sidelined for extended periods of time, while Genseric Kusunga serves the second game of his three-match suspension. Wade Joyce and Ellis Plummer, both brought in on loan deals on Thursday, could be included in Johnson's squad.

Bradford's squad has been badly affected by a sickness bug and boss Phil Parkinson kept all his players away on Wednesday and Thursday in a bid to stop the virus spreading. Defender Matt Taylor was ruled out of the midweek draw against Notts County, striker Nahki Wells was forced off in the second half while Rory McArdle, James Hanson, Alan Connell and Kyel Reid were also struggling with the illness.
