Bury striker Andy Bishop is rated as doubtful for the home clash with Shrewsbury in the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy.
The highly-rated forward is suffering with tendonitis to his knee but boss Alan Knill has no other fitness concerns and no suspensions.
Bishop has been missing for the last two games because of the problem and will be assessed closer to kick-off.
The Shakers were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Rotherham on Saturday but Knill is happy with his side`s form.
He said: "I would have been quite happy with mid-table but now we are in the top seven we want to stay there.
"If we are still looking a top-seven side in another 36 games I will be delighted."
