Football - Latics without MacDonald

Charlie MacDonald has been added to Oldham's injury list prior to their FA Cup second-round clash with Mansfield at Boundary Park.

PA Sport Report

The striker has a thigh injury which is set to keep him out of action for potentially the next six weeks after training on despite complaining of tightness in the muscle.

He joins winger Cristian Montano (knee), forward Kirk Millar (ankle and calf) and defender Edijs Joksts (back) as absentees while centre-back Genseric Kusunga completes his three-match ban.

On-loan full-back Ellis Plummer has been given permission to play by parent club Manchester City, though, as Latics aim to reach round three of a competition which saw them knock out Liverpool last season.
