Football - Mvoto back after suspension

Jean Yves Mvoto is expected to return to Oldham's starting line-up for the New Year's Day trip to struggling Scunthorpe.

Mvoto missed Saturday's 2-1 home defeat to Crewe after picking up five bookings for the season and being forced to serve a one-match suspension.

Reece Wabara filled in a centre-half in his absence and the on-loan Manchester City youngster is expected to revert to his more familiar position of right-back, with Connor Brown the most likely candidate to make way for Mvoto.

Robbie Simpson will serve the third and final game of his suspension for a red card in 4-1 loss at Yeovil, meaning Jose Baxter and Matt Smith are set to continue in attack with weekend goalscorer Daniel Taylor likely to feature from the bench once more.

A run of four consecutive npower League One defeats means Paul Dickov's men head into the match only six points ahead of second-bottom Scunthorpe.
