Manager Keith Curle faces a selection poser in attack as he prepares Notts County for the visit of the Shrews.

Enoch Showunmi was one of five changes made by Curle for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie at Scunthorpe in midweek and the big striker took full advantage of being handed his first start of the season by getting on the scoresheet.

Showunmi replaced Lee Hughes, who also scored in the 2-0 league win at Bury last weekend.

Leading scorer Francois Zoko and Yoann Arquin, who made his return from suspension in the victory over Scunthorpe, are Curle's other striking options.

Defender Julian Kelly, midfielders Alan Judge, Jeff Hughes and Neal Bishop and striker Lee Hughes were the players left out on Tuesday night. All of them are strong contenders to be restored to the starting XI.

Meanwhile, Jamal Campbell-Ryce has seen another specialist in an attempt to get to the bottom of the calf problem that has kept the winger on the sidelines so far this season.

Shrewsbury boast a clean bill of health after Tom Bradshaw and Michael Hector were both cleared to play.

Striker Bradshaw has been selected for Wales' Under-21 clash in the Czech Republic on Monday afternoon but has been given clearance by the FAW to be involved at Meadow Lane and link up with his international team-mates afterwards.

On-loan centre-back Hector missed last weekend's 1-1 draw at Stevenage with a knee injury but returned to training on Monday and will now compete with Reuben Hazell, who stepped in and performed well in what was his first start for 11 months.
