There are questions over the fitness of the midfielder, signed from Nantwich Town on the recommendation of Karl Marginson, his manager at FC United. However, the large number of injuries in the Lilywhites squad could force the hand of co-managers Peter Band and Lloyd Morrison.
Band said: "Ollie probably needs a couple more training sessions as I'm not completely sure he's match fit. But given the situation we're in he might get on against Burscough.
"It's really important for the club that we win it because FA Cup games generate cash and we could pick up £1,925. We'll have to make sure we start well. And of course it's a big incentive to know we would be playing Curzon Ashton in the next round."
Mike Fish, Steve Foster, James Blair, Liam Higginbotham and John Bennett are all injured and Dougie Carroll may not be available. However, Band believes most could return for Saturday's home league clash with Lancaster City.
So far, Mossley have taken four points from a possible 12, but in their last Evo-stik match they achieved their first three points of the season, beating Padiham 2-1.
"It's been a funny start. We've played well in the games we lost and probably not been at our best against Padiham and Burscough where we won and drew. Even so I think we should have six points instead of four," said Band.
"So far we haven't reached the heights we managed in pre-season although I realise friendlies are nothing like competitive fixtures. But once everybody's fit I think we could upset a few people.
"To do that it's likely we'll have to keep more players than we intended to. You can only put 16 names on the sheet which means some lads will always be disappointed if you have a squad of more than 20.
"However you can never legislate for injuries. If we'd let people go, as we planned, we'd have been struggling to put a team out."
Burscough manager Derek Goulding made two changes for Saturday's tie. He put Danny Dunleavy into midfield and striker John Connolly made his first appearance of the season after missing the opening games through illness.
The first qualifying round of the FA Cup takes places on Saturday, September 13, with £3,000 going to each winner. The ties as they affect Tameside and Glossop are Brigham Town v Ashton United, Burscough or Mossley v Curzon Ashton, Northwich Victoria v Glossop North End and Ossett Albion v Droylsden.
