Oldham Athletic host Charlton Athletic at SportsDirect.com Park on Saturday, September 2, 3pm kick-off.
Latics sit one place above the bottom, whilst their opponents have only lost a single match in the league so far and are placed fourth in the table.
Goals from Ben Reeves and debutant George Lapslie saw Charlton progress in the Checkatrade Trophy midweek, a feat Latics came agonisingly close to doing, before losing 4-2 to Port Vale in a penalty shootout.
Oldham Athletic manager John Sheridan said of the visitors: “They’ve got a good footballing manager who did a brilliant job at MK Dons so I think they’ll do well.
“We had a good result against them last season when I came back but they’ve got some good players, it’ll be a difficult game.”
Sheridan’s squad remains depleted by injuries, but following a series of deadline day additions competition for places has increased.
Eoin Doyle, Kean Bryan and Johny Placide are all available for selection, whilst Jack Ruddy is away on international duty.
An early goal from Ollie Banks earned Oldham the victory when the two clubs last met, but it is their League positions which dictate the Sky Bet odds.
The Addicks are favourites at 21/20, whilst Oldham are 14/5 and the draw is 9/4.
