Leeds United go into this fixture without the two men who have so far fired Leeds out of the relegation zone. Still unbeaten, can Leeds return to winning ways?
Dennis Wise who has had to shuffle his team around due to the suspensions to Kandol and Beckford, recognises the threat of Oldham's front pair, part of a strike force that includes former guest of HM Prisons Lee Hughes: 'Oldham are a difficult team and they have two strikers who work hard for each other,' he said.
'It'd have been nice to have our main strikers available, but we haven't. We've brought two players in on loan and we'll re-jig the situation now.'
Meanwhile on the player front, loan-signing Jamie Clapham is delighted with his extended stay at Elland Road, believing that The Whites are on the brink of 'something special.' Speaking to leedsunited.com Clapham said: 'It's been a great first month here.'
'I've thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm delighted with everyone here and it's great to be a part of it.
'Something special is going to happen this season for Leeds and to be a part of it...it'll be great to stay a bit longer.
'Every footballer wants to be involved. You get paid for doing a job and that's what I want to do.'
Turning to all things Old Ham, Andy Liddle can't wait for his chance to face the League One team to beat: 'It's a big game and one that we need to win,'
They have made a fantastic start to the season and would easily be winning the league were it not for the point’s deduction. They've probably got the best squad in the league as they're the biggest club, and it'll be a good test for us and give some of the younger players an opportunity to show what they can do.'
Oldham boss John Sheridan has no new injury worries to deal with, and is likely to field an un-changed side from the one that saw off Crewe on Saturday.
Therefore the likely side:
Crossley, Eardley, Hazell, Gregan, Bertrand, Liddell, Kalala, Allott , Taylor, Ricketts, Davies.
If there's one thing I hope Leeds United never do, is give the fans a squad number.
I mean technically speaking does that mean we can field the entire home attendance as a substitute?
Passionate fans just the same as Leeds, they could have a major say tonight as a smaller away following would be expected of a midweek fixture.
The suspensions to Jermaine Beckford and Tresor Kandol mean that Dennis Wise has had to move into the emergency loan market.
It is likely that the Leeds side will be unchanged apart from the replacement of Beckford/Kandol with loan signings Mark deVries and Wayne Andrews.
The big Dutchman has a history of scoring goals in his career, can he continue to do it for Leeds United?
Another day another load of useless facts about our opposition's home town:
