Shrewsbury have no fresh injury worries for FA Cup visit of Fleetwood

Shrewsbury have no fresh injury worries for the FA Cup visit of Fleetwood but defender Joe Riley and midfielder Shaun Whalley continue to be sidelined.

Riley had knee surgery last month and is expected to make his comeback just before Christmas while Whalley has not yet returned to training following a thigh problem.

Ethan Jones (knee) is unlikely to feature and Abu Ogogo completes his three-match ban after being sent off in last month's Sky Bet League One defeat at Sheffield United.

Fleetwood beat Shrewsbury, who are bottom of the table, 3-0 in the league last week.

Fleetwood will be without defender Ashley Eastham, who injured himself in that fixture.

The news that Eastham had had surgery on a broken jaw was revealed on the player's Instagram account at the weekend, much to his manager Uwe Rosler's anger, and he is now set for a month on the sidelines.

Rosler, who led Wigan to an FA Cup semi-final at Wembley during his time at the DW Stadium, is likely to pick a strong XI once more.

Jimmy Ryan has taken longer than expected to shake off a foot problem, while Michael Duckworth has been troubled by a groin injury and Martyn Woolford (knee) is a long-term absentee.
