Quinn poised for Blades recall Sheffield United midfielder Stephen Quinn is expected to return to the starting line-up against Oldham.
Quinn was dropped for the midweek win over Scunthorpe, but stepped off the substitutes' bench at half-time and had a hand in the equaliser before grabbing the Blades' winner.
Playmaker Kevin McDonald remains sidelined with a hamstring injury sustained during the win over Preston 10 days ago and fellow midfielder Nick Montgomery is hoping to shake off an ankle injury after missing out on Wednesday night.
Austria international Johnny Ertl is likely to retain his place in midfield if Montgomery fails to make it.
Manager Danny Wilson must decide who to partner with leading goalscorer Ched Evans.
James Beattie started against Scunthorpe but was replaced at the interval by Richard Cresswell, while Will Hoskins, on loan from Brighton, is pushing for a recall.
The Blades bounced back from Sunday's Steel City derby defeat with a 2-1 win over Scunthorpe and remain five points clear of third-placed Sheffield Wednesday with a game in hand.
Oldham expect to be without attacking midfielder Chris Taylor.
Taylor fell ill ahead of Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Colchester at Boundary Park and was sent home before kick-off.
The 25-year-old has not returned to training since and boss Paul Dickov will monitor his progress as the Bramall Lane clash approaches.
Dickov's options in midfield are starting to look decidedly threadbare in the midst of a hectic fixture schedule, with Dean Furman (knee) and long-term absentee James Wesolowski (shoulder) also absent.
Wesolowski and full-back Paul Black (hamstring) may be out for the season and winger Kirk Millar is continuing his rehabilitation after damaging ankle ligaments.

Latics blunt Blades Former Sheffield Wednesday striker Shefki Kuqi scored an injury-time winner from the penalty spot as Oldham completed an unlikely comeback to triumph 3-2 at Sheffield United.
The Blades were coasting following first-half goals from Matt Lowton and Ched Evans before Richard Cresswell scored an own goal and Kieran Lee equalised for the visitors. Kuqi's penalty came after Harry Maguire hauled down Reuben Reid.
Lowton grabbed the opening goal after 22 minutes, tapping in from close-range after Evans won the ball and played it across the face of goal.
Evans made it 2-0 seven minutes before half-time, drilling a low shot beyond Alex Cisak from the right-hand side of the area for his 22nd goal of the season.
Blades skipper Michael Doyle struck a post with a 20-yard effort before Cresswell headed the ball into his own net following a Filipe Morais corner in the 65th minute.
Two minutes later, Lowton was sent-off when he received a second yellow card for a late challenge on James Tarkowski.
Lee quickly made it 2-2 with a fine shot from the right-hand side of the area after 69 minutes.
