Injured Byrne on the mendAlex Cisak is Latics' major injury worry for Saturday's npower League One match at Yeovil Town.
But Latics are hopeful Cliff Byrne, also hurt in last Saturday's home defeat by Swindon, will be available for the trip to the West Country.
Goalkeeper Cisak (pictured leaving the field on Saturday) had seven stitches inserted in a deep gash to his forehead as well as also suffering from concussion.
Cisak (pictured) is resting but Paul Dickov says he may be able to do some work later in the week.
"We have to be careful with him as he was knocked out. Hopefully he will be able to do something on Thursday or Friday, but he has to be a doubt," explained Latics' manager.
Byrne's back, which went into spasms after he jarred it, is settling and improving each day according to Dickov.
