Sean O'Driscoll has no fresh injury worries as he looks to chalk up Bristol City's first league win since March when Shrewsbury come to Ashton Gate.
The Robins have gone 15 games without picking up three points but the City side came through their 3-0 defeat to Peterborough on Saturday unscathed.
Jordan Wynter and Neil Kilkenny are on the road to recovery but this match comes too soon for the pair while striker Ryan Taylor could be back in training before the end of the week as he steps up his comeback from an ankle problem.
Marvin Elliott is pushing for a start having been an unused substitute following his return from international duty with Jamaica while O'Driscoll looks set to continue with goalkeeper Frank Fielding in goal.
Shrewsbury boss Graham Turner must decide whether to stick or twist ahead of the trip to struggling Bristol City.
Turner watched his Shrews side end Crawley's two-match winning run with a creditable 1-1 draw at the Broadfield Stadium on Saturday.
Dave Winfield returned from his long-term hamstring injury as an unused substitute and is again likely to be on the bench, while the game is expected to come too soon for fellow defender Tamika Mkandawire as he closes in on his comeback from a similar problem. Striker John Marsden (foot) is also not yet ready.
Turner is currently mulling over a loan extension for Middlesbrough winger Adam Reach - a late substitute at Crawley - after his month-long stay expired over the weekend.
