Oldham Athletic AFC	vs Blackpool - Anthony Gerrard set to miss Blackpool clash

Anthony Gerrard is likely to be missing for Oldham again when they meet Blackpool.

The central defender missed the 3-0 loss to Wigan on Friday with a calf strain and he did not even train in the build up to that defeat.

Cameron Dummigan (groin) is unlikely to play again this season after picking up a problem on international duty with Northern Ireland Under-21s.

Patrick McEleney will be hoping for his first start after three substitute appearances since his mid-season switch.

Kyle Vassell will be back in the Blackpool squad.

The striker was absent when the Seasiders were beaten 2-1 by Doncaster on Friday, yet boss Gary Bowyer explained it was just a knock and he will be ready for the trip to Boundary Park.

Bowyer was complimentary of Danny Philliskirk’s performance from the bench so it is possible he could start against his former club.

Kelvin Mellor (ankle), Mark Cullen (hamstring) and Jim McAlister (bone bruising) are all expected to return before the end of the season, though a comeback in this fixture appears unlikely.
