Shrewsbury hope both Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Tom Eaves will be fit for their crunch clash at home to fellow strugglers Bristol City.

Winger Mendez-Laing was forced off just before half-time in last Sunday's goalless draw against Coventry nursing a hamstring injury, with striker Eaves substituted due to a similar problem late on in the encounter.

Midfielders Luke Summerfield and Aaron Wildig are both closing in on their returns from respective thigh injuries but the clash is likely to come too soon.

Loan signing Sam Foley is available for his debut having arrived from Yeovil on an initial month-long deal, while newly-appointed assistant manager Andy Morrell will take his place alongside boss Mike Jackson in the dugout.

Bristol City boss Steve Cotterill will wait on goalkeeper Simon Moore before naming his side to face Shrewsbury.

The Cardiff loanee has been suffering with a groin problem and the Robins are assessing him on a day-to-day basis, with Frank Fielding ready to continue in goal having started for the first time since October against Gillingham last weekend.

Scott Wagstaff rejoined training this week having been sidelined for a month with a shoulder injury and Cotterill says they will assess how he is looking and he could be involved.

City make the trip looking to shed an unwanted record - Cotterill's men are the only Football League team yet to keep a clean sheet on their travels this season.
