Calum Chambers could return in the Fulham defence to face Oldham in the FA Cup after being ineligible for the league defeat by Arsenal.

Fellow defender Alfie Mawson is still struggling with a knee injury.

Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri: "I will give a chance to some players who aren't used to playing every match and I want to give them a very good opportunity to show their qualities to me and also in front of our supporters.

"In [Oldham's] last two matches they have won and they changed their coach and then they have everything to win and nothing to lose and vice-versa; we have everything to lose and nothing to win."

Oldham, under caretaker manager Peter Wild, will be without Ishmael Miller after the striker's short-term contract came to an end.

Defender Rob Hunt is back in contention after missing the 2-1 win over Notts County with a minor foot injury.

Oldham caretaker manager Peter Wild: "Of course we can get the upset, why would we bother going if we didn't think we could win the game?

"It's 11 v 11 at the end of the day and we've got a great history of cup upsets.

"We've got to go down there with the mindset that we're going to cause an upset and if we can do then it'll be fantastic."
