PREVIEW: Oldham vs Cheltenham Town – Michael Duff hunts for first Robins win

Oldham, meanwhile, have been uninspiring this season, following their dive from League 1 into League 2, as they flutter in 15th place.

Tom Field could be back in contention for Cheltenham following the youngsters injury and Kevin Dawson could make is return for the Robins. However, Cheltenham’s goal-scorer from the weekend Tyrone Barnett may be out of the tie due to a dead leg.

Oldham are still without Ousmane Fane and Andy Taylor, with the pair suffering from chronic injury issues, however Taylor’s understudy Rob Hunt has been performing well covering him at left-back.

Both sides will be desperate for the win, as Cheltenham will look to climb up the table and away from the relegation zone, whilst Oldham will aim to please the home supporters with a win, as Frankie Bunn’s attempt to bounce straight back into League 1 has been limp so far this season.

In terms of head-to-head form, a draw has been the mode result, with three of the last six games ending in a stalemate.

Bournemouth’s on-loan strike Sam Surridge has to find a way to force himself into the squad, despite scoring six goals in six games for the Latics and being their top scorer, with Bunn preferring a partnership of Chris O’Grady and Callum Lang.

Cheltenham travel up to the Boundary Park tomorrow, as their game kicks off at 7:45.
