Oldham Athletic manager Paul Dickov has boosted his striking options by signing Manchester City youngsters Luca Scapuzzi and Andreas Mancini on loan.

Scapuzzi has arrived at Boundary Park on a two-month deal after impressing during City's 5-2 victory at Wolves in the Carling Cup last week.

Mancini is the son of City boss Roberto and has joined the Latics for an initial month, with a view to extending the arrangement.

Both players could be involved in Saturday's local derby against Bury and Dickov is happy to have added the Italian pair to his squad.

Grateful

Dickov told City's official website: "We have got a couple of strikers out with injury and I am really grateful to Roberto Mancini for allowing these deals to go through.

"Luca's confidence is high at the moment after his appearance, assists, and 'goal' (which was later changed to an own goal) in the Carling Cup against Wolves and hopefully he will bring that with him.

"I have seen both Luca and Andrea play this season and they are both decent players.

"We have four games in the next two weeks so they will definitely see some action."
