Bury boss Alan Knill is set to name striker Andy Bishop among his substitutes for the home clash with Shrewsbury.
The highly-rated frontman has not played since September but could make his long-awaited return from a bout of tendonitis off the bench against the Shrews.
Ryan Lowe, Lenny John-Lewis and Nicky Ajose have all failed to score in their last four outings, but Knill said: "I'm not concerned about the strikers at all.
"Ryan has got 14 goals already and that is a pretty good return. Lowey goes through patches like this where he doesn't score and then he gets six or seven in as many games."
Damien Mozika and Cameron Belford have missed training all week with injury, but Knill expects both to be involved against the Shrews.
