The Iron will travel to the DW Stadium this Saturday when they take on Wigan Athletic in Sky Bet League One (kick-off 3pm).
Two Oldham goals towards the end of the second-half meant that United were defeated 2-0 at Glanford Park last weekend.
Meanwhile, Wigan came from 2-0 down to draw against promotion rivals Blackburn Rovers thanks to goals from Will Grigg and Max Power. They sit in third position.
The Iron will assess Ivan Toney (groin) ahead of the match, after he trained with the squad on Tuesday.
However, manager Graham Alexander will be without Luke Williams, who tore the scar tissue that has formed since he was ruled out with a hamstring problem for seven months. He is expected to be out of action for a few weeks.
Jordan Clarke (hamstring) has returned to training but is not up to full speed, so he will not be returning just yet. Fellow right-back Marnick Vermijl (hamstring) will also not be involved.
Murray Wallace, who went off injured against Oldham, suffered from cramp around his hamstring area and is yet to train this week.
Striker Lee Novak still hasn’t trained with the squad and is expected to stay on the sidelines with a heel injury.
Kyle Wootton has returned to full training after a hamstring injury and featured in a reserve game on Monday.
Jonathon Margetts (knee) remains a long-term absentee.

ONE TO WATCH…
Wigan’s top scorer Nick Powell will be one player the Iron defence need to keep an eye on, having scored 12 league goals this campaign.
The attacking midfielder signed permanently for the Latics in 2016 from Manchester United.
He began his career at Crewe Alexandra, winning promotion from League Two via the play-offs in 2012, before earning a big move to Old Trafford.
