Shrewsbury manager Mike Jackson should have no fresh injury concerns when his side look to keep their faint hopes of League One survival alive against Peterborough.

The Shrews find themselves six points behind 20th-placed Crewe with only two games left, but with a better goal difference, and will need to put an end to a run of three successive defeats if they are to achieve a near impossible task.

Midfielder David McAllister (ankle) is Jackson's only notable absentee while Paul Parry and Tom Eaves, both half-time substitutes during Monday's heavy defeat at Preston, will be hoping for recalls to the starting XI.

Defender Jermaine Grandison has not featured since last month after picking up a hamstring injury against at Carlisle.

Peterborough will check on Danny Swanson ahead of the trip to relegation-haunted Shrewsbury.

Swanson is still struggling with the ankle injury he sustained against Coventry on April 12 and the midfielder is likely to remain sidelined for a third game, giving manager Darren Ferguson an unchanged squad to choose from.

Defender Shaun Brisley will complete a two-match suspension while the likes of Mark Little, Jack Payne, Joe Newell, Tommy Rowe, Nicky Ajose and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing are pushing for recalls after Ferguson made seven changes against Carlisle on Monday.

Victory will guarantee Posh a play-off spot but Shrewsbury have to win to stand any chance of staying up, and even that might not be enough to preserve their Sky Bet League One status.
