Oldham have signed two more players ahead of the start of the League One campaign after landing Darren Byfield and Peter Gilbert.
The Latics, who have already landed Alex Morrow on a month's loan from Blackburn, have landed the pair on short-term deals.
Byfield spent two months on loan at Boundary Park from Doncaster last season and scored once in League One from eight starts.
Latics' assistant boss Martin Gray is pleased to have captured Byfield, saying: "We're delighted to have Darren on board to provide competition for places for the other forwards."
Gilbert, who cost Leicester £200,000 in 2005, has spent the past few seasons with Sheffield Wednesday while also undertaking a loan spell with Doncaster.
