Football - Kusunga banned for Latics

Oldham will be without suspended defender Genseric Kusunga when they bid to make it four wins on the trot against Shrewsbury.

PA Sport Report

Lee Johnson's men were able to hang on for the final four minutes to secure a 1-0 win over Gillingham after Swiss centre-back Kusunga was given his marching orders for lashing out at Danny Kedwell.

Kusunga now serves a three-match suspension, joining banned striker Jordan Bove, who completes a three-game ban of his own, while Joseph Mills' three-month loan spell from Burnley has now ended so Johnson will be forced into at least two defensive alterations.

Striker Danny Philliskirk is expected to overcome a head injury but Latics will run the rule over winger Cristian Montano, who has been complaining of a knee injury.
