Influential Oldham defender Will Haining has been ruled out for at least a month.Oldham have been dealt another injury blow with the news that influential defender Will Haining has been ruled out for at least a month.
The Scottish stopper has been in excellent form of late and had reportedly been attracting attention further up the football pyramid.
Haining has damaged his hamstring and was forced off in Sunday's FA Cup defeat to Bolton - leaving boss Brian Talbot with a selection headache.
The Latics are already without several first team players and this latest setback will do little to relieve what is an already congested treatment room.
''We seem to be having terrible luck at the moment, but we've just got to battle on,'' Talbot told the Oldham Evening Chronicle.
''We're up to our limit for loan players and I can't go out and sign someone permanently.
''Will Haining goes for a scan today and we'll find out the extent of his problem, but we fully expect a torn hamstring.''
