Bristol Rovers go into their fourth game of the season in search of their first win, and Joey Barton is set to shake things up.
The manager has had his hand forced to a degree in the opening week of the season, with injuries forcing away from his plan to play with a three-man defence.
A back four has been deployed instead and Rovers, to say the least, have been disjointed across three consecutive defeats.
The lack of chance creation, in particular, has been cause for concern for Barton, and he told reporters they can expect to see a change of plan from the 4-3-3 which has led to a winless start to the campaign.
Here is the expected Rovers line-up to play Oldham this evening…

Anssi Jaakkola will start in goal for the Gas, with James Belshaw taking a seat on the bench.
The Finn has been screened by a back four so far this season, but that could change on Tuesday, with Barton hinting he will move to a back three.
Should he do so, Alfie Kilgour, Mark Hughes and Nick Anderton could be the starters, from right to left.
Trevor Clarke’s injury means Rovers are without a recognised left-sided wing-back, but Harry Anderson has shown enough as a left winger to do a job there in a game where the Gas, for all their problems, need to be on the front foot.
Alex Rodman managed half an hour as a sub on Saturday, and he should be fit to start at right wing-back on Tuesday.
Luca Hoole would be unlucky to lose his starting spot after a superb start to life in the first-team, but he may be needed to drop to the bench to facilitate the change in shape.

He could be joined in the dugout by Cian Harries, Connor Taylor, Jack Baldwin and Pablo Martinez.
With Paul Coutts serving the final game of his suspension, Sam Finley and Josh Grant will keep their spots in midfield, but Cameron Hargreaves could make way to get another forward on the pitch.
Luke Thomas has played mostly on the right wing so far, but he could be the man for the number 10 role behind two strikers on Tuesday.
Ben Liddle, Sion Spence and Ryan Jones could make the bench, but Zain Westbrooke is unlikely to be involved with the manager making him available for transfer.
Without their main striker, Brett Pitman, due to injury, the one-up-top policy for Rovers has failed to deliver enough chances or goals in three games so far.
Harvey Saunders has put in three almighty shifts alone in attack, but on Tuesday he should be given some help in the shape of Aaron Collins.
Collins is one of several players who is not fully up to speed due to a pre-season injury, but he is likely to be needed from the start against the Latics.
That would leave Sam Nicholson, who Barton says is capped at 30-minute appearances for the time being, as the ace up the sleeve for the final third of the game.
Pitman and Brandon Hanlan remain unavailable due to ankle and knee injuries respectively.
Rovers (3-4-1-2): Jaakkola; Kilgour, Hughes (c), Anderton; Rodman, Grant, Finley, Anderson; Thomas; Collins, Saunders.
