New signing Cristian Lopez is in contention to make his Shrewsbury debut at home against Gillingham.

The Spanish striker arrived on a one-month loan deal from Huddersfield on Thursday and will hope to make his Shrews bow against a resurgent Gills at the Greenhous Meadow.

Lopez could partner five-goal leading scorer Tom Bradshaw in attack after he made himself unavailable for the Wales Under-21 side despite originally being selected for international duty.

Defender Dave Winfield also returns to the fold having served his one-match suspension for the red card received at Bradford.

Michael Harriman will miss out for Gillingham having been ruled out with a calf injury.

The right-back, on loan from QPR, faces a number of weeks on the sidelines but would have missed the clash in any case due to his international commitments with the Republic of Ireland's Under-21 side.

That means manager Martin Allen will be forced to change a winning formula as the Gills aim for a third successive triumph.

Allen kept faith with the same XI who recorded Gillingham's first win of the season at the 11th attempt as they beat Crewe 3-0 and duly watched his unchanged side make it back-to-back victories against MK Dons last weekend.
