Midfielder James Bailey is closing in on a return to action having returned to training after recovering from a groin injury.
Bailey has not played since picking up the injury against Blackpool in the Carling Cup and despite being close to full fitness, he is not expected to feature against the Shrews.
Mat Mitchel-King remains on the sidelines with the back injury which he sustained in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat against Stockport.
Striker Clayton Donaldson (fractured fibula) is also out, but Luke Murphy (thigh) and Ashley Westwood (shin) are available for selection.
AJ Leitch-Smith and Chris Clements are pushing for a place in the squad after returning from a loan spell with Icelandic club IBV.
