Oldham Athletic welcome Leeds United to Boundary Park on Monday with both sides looking to cement their position in the play-offs, live on Sky Sports 2 & HD2.
The two clubs will have hoped to have recovered from Saturday's exertions with both teams winning 3-2 against two other play-off rivals.
The Latics overtook fifth place Millwall with a last-gasp win at The Den while United edged Scunthorpe out of the top six with their victory.
Oldham will be out to complete a league double over their opponents after winning 2-0 at Elland Road earlier in the season but the visitors know that three points can take them level with John Sheridan's men.
Latics team news
Manager Sheridan is looking to keep the same line-up that started against Millwall on Saturday with no new injuries worrying the former Leeds player.
Sheridan made five changes to his starting line-up for the clash with the Lions after seeing his side lose 2-0 at home to Bristol Rovers last Tuesday.
In came Greg Fleming, Kevin Maher, Neal Eardley and Daniel Jones with on-loan Sheffield United striker Steve Kabba making his debut. All are expected to keep their places.
Veteran goalkeeper Mark Crossley remains sidelined with a back injury and could be out for another month.
Leeds team news
Midfielder Jonny Howson will miss the trip through suspension after he was sent-off against Scunthorpe at the weekend.
Winger Andy Robinson could also miss out after being withdrawn after just 15 minutes on Saturday with a hamstring injury.
Bradley Johnson could be in line to replace the 29-year-old after he came on for the former Swansea man and subsequently scored his side's second goal.
Striker Luciano Becchio is available again after suspension while manager Simon Grayson will assess the fitness of midfielder Neil Kilkenny who is struggling with a back injury.
Captain Frazer Richardson (calf) and midfielder Andrew Hughes (hamstring) both look set to lose their battle to be fit in time for the match.
