Wolves captain Sam Ricketts is expected to be fit for the visit of Shrewsbury despite picking up an injury in midweek.

The Wales international has a slight quad strain but Wolves boss Kenny Jackett is confident he will be fully fit to take on the Shrews.

Jackett otherwise has no fresh injury concerns after his side broke the club record for successive victories at Swindon.

The Wanderers will be aiming to extend that winning run to 10 matches this weekend, a streak which has owed much to Nouha Dicko's eight goals.

Shrewsbury could again be without Tom Eaves when they take on local rivals Wolves.

The on-loan Bolton striker has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury and faces a race against time to be fit for Saturday's clash.

Midfield pair Aaron Wildig (quad) and Luke Summerfield (thigh) are also struggling to make it to help the Shrews in their bid to edge closer to safety.

Striker Tom Bradshaw is a long-term absentee with a knee problem sustained last month.
