The Latics winger has missed the past two games after he underwent an operation to have a cyst drained, but was back in training on Thursday ahead of the meeting with the unbeaten O's.

Manager Lee Johnson could call on central defender Genseric Kusunga, who also returned to training this week after missing a fortnight due to a hamstring problem.

Midfielder David Mellor completes his three-match ban and will available for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy clash with Preston in midweek but full-back Connor Brown (knee) remains on the sidelines.
