Oldham boss Paul Dickov is confident that his injured players will be ready for Monday nights JPT area final against Chesterfield.

Latics have to overturn a 2-1 deficit and the more players they have ready, the better, at the moment Dickov has his eye on four.

Suffering with a knee injury is Dean Furman, also suffering with more problems from his dislocated shoulder is James Wesolowski.

Zander Diamond has not featured since the first leg at Chesterfield where he picked up a neck injury while warming up.

Last but not least, Robbie Simpson has a hamstring complaint.

Speaking to the club`s official website, Dickov Said: ‘We are confident the majority, if not all of the injured players will have a chance of playing on Monday night.

‘The good thing is that the players who are out are all desperate to play in such a big game and put their bodies on the line.

‘We have had 12 games since the beginning of December in a seven-week spell so you are going to pick up little niggles, especially when you have played as many games as we have.’
