Oldham winger Cristian Montano is expected to spend at least two months on the sidelines after scans confirmed a torn thigh muscle.

Montano, who missed Latics' dramatic 3-2 FA Cup triumph over Nottingham Forest last Saturday after suffering the injury at Scunthorpe on New Year's Day, has suffered a grade two tear that means an absence of between eight to 10 weeks.

The 21-year-old moved to Boundary Park from West Ham in August and has made 28 appearances for Paul Dickov's men this season.

Montano said in Spanish on Twitter: "A little sad about the result, not expecting to be so long sidelined."
