Manager Graham Turner will have to reshuffle his defence as Shrewsbury host relegation rivals Bury.
Centre-back Jermaine Grandison was this week ruled out for at least six weeks with a hip injury.
Grandison has been managing the complaint over the last couple of weeks but was eventually forced off at half-time in last Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Swindon.
That means Yado Mambo is likely to come in although fellow defender Cameron Gayle also stands a chance of starting against the Shakers.
Otherwise, long-term absentees Mark Wright (knee) and Ryan Doble (hand) are expected to be the only ones to miss out.
Shrews, in 18th place in League One, currently find themselves four places and eight points clear of third-bottom Bury.
Bury manager Kevin Blackwell has a raft of new options for the trip to Shrewsbury following a busy week in the loan market.
Forward Nicky Ajose and defender Ashley Eastham have returned to Gigg Lane from Peterborough and Blackpool respectively for their second temporary spells with the npower League One strugglers.
Eastham could be joined in the Shakers' back four by Stephane Zubar, who agreed a move from Bournemouth until the end of the season on Thursday.
Bolton winger Gregg Wylde and QPR striker Troy Hewitt are back with their parent clubs following the end of their own loan spells.
Mark Carrington (groin) is fit to return, as are striker Andy Bishop (foot) and David Healy (groin).
Defenders Phil Picken (knee) and Adam Lockwood (groin) are out for the season along with midfielder Shane Byrne (blood disorder).
