The Shrews were beaten 1-0 at Bury on Friday night and with several players carrying “bumps and bruises” Simpson may make a few changes to freshen things up.
One potential change could see new signing Jamie Cureton handed his first start after he came on as a second-half substitute at Gigg Lane following a loan move from Norwich in the week.
Terry Dunfield was the man who made way for the striker and he is a candidate to drop out of the side if Cureton does start.
Dean Holden and Jake Simpson were also named on the bench on Friday after recent injuries and they could both come into contention for a start.
The game, due to be shown live on Sky, may be in doubt after heavy snow on Sunday morning left a notoriously bad pitch at Don Valley covered.
