Triple boost for Shots
Chris Doig could make his Aldershot debut at home to Shrewsbury, while Jamie Day and Charlie Henry also come back into contention.
Centre-back Doig, who has over 200 appearances under his belt for Nottingham Forest and Northampton, arrived at the EBB Stadium on Thursday on a month-by-month non-contract deal.
On-loan left-back Day is available after being denied permission by parent club Crawley to feature in last Saturday`s FA Cup defeat at Sheffield Wednesday.
Fellow loanee Henry was also unable to feature at Hillsborough having been cup-tied due to his earlier involvement in the competition with Luton.
Striker Michael Rankine and winger Adam Smith have struggled with a virus this week but are both expected to be okay.
Shots, with just one win to their name in their last five games in all competitions, aim to get back to winning ways against a Shrewsbury side flying high in League Two.
Shrewsbury boss Graham Turner faces a welcome selection dilemma for the trip.
James Wallace returns to the fray for the first time since seeing red on his debut against Dagenham & Redbridge at the start of November.
The on-loan Everton midfielder served a three-match suspension before being denied permission by his parent club to feature in last weekend`s FA Cup win over Rotherham.
Fellow loanee Aaron Wildig is also set to return to contention for a midfield berth having missed out last weekend with an ankle injury.
Both are influential performers but it remains to be seen whether Turner will change the midfield of Lionel Ainsworth, Nicky Wroe, Matthew Richards and Mark Wright, who performed against Rotherham.
Tom Bradshaw (illness) is a doubt while long-term absentees Jermaine Grandison (hamstring) and Reuben Hazell (knee) remain absent. Striker Marvin Morgan returns to the EBB Stadium for the first time since leaving over the summer.
Guttridge settles matters for Shots
Luke Guttridge scored the only goal to hand Aldershot their first league win since the start of November against in-form Shrewsbury.
After a quiet opening the first chance of the game went to the hosts as Aaron Morris' dangerous volley stung the gloves of Chris Neal.
Danny Hylton was a constant threat for the home side but it was Shrews who had the next good opening, home goalkeeper Jamie Young equal to Nicky Wroe's 25th-minute effort.
The home side responded positively and Anthony Straker and Jamie Collins both saw efforts whistle over the crossbar.
Shrewsbury carved out the clearest opening of the half but Mark Wright ballooned over after a clever knockdown by former Shots striker Marvin Morgan, before Aldershot's Adam Smith watched his cross hit the woodwork with the last kick of the half.
Aldershot started the second 45 minutes at a higher tempo, Alex Rodman testing Neal with a curling free-kick.
And they were rewarded after 67 minutes when a corner fell to Hylton inside the six-yard box, who in turn set up Guttridge barely a yard out for surely the easiest goal he will ever score.
Shrewsbury pushed but Shots looked dangerous on the break and Guttridge almost claimed a second with an excellent volley which drifted just over.
