Guy given all-clear
Guy Madjo has recovered in time for Aldershot's home encounter against league leaders Southend but Darren Murphy again misses out.
Madjo hobbled off having been on the end of Carl Tremarco's second-half challenge which resulted in a straight red card for the Macclesfield defender in Saturday's 1-0 victory at the Moss Rose.
But the striker has recovered from the knock and is in contention to retain his starting berth as the in-form Shots aim for a fifth successive victory when high-flying Southend visit Hampshire.
On-loan midfielder Murphy was ruled out at the weekend having sustained a thigh strain in training on Friday and Aaron Morris - who scored the winner against the Silkmen - is set to keep his place in what could be an unchanged XI for manager Dean Holdsworth.
Meanwhile, striker Stefan Payne is to leave Aldershot and link up with Blue Square Bet South side Sutton. The 20-year-old only joined in late January on a deal until the end of the season having had his contract at Gillingham terminated by mutual consent.
Luke Prosser will hope to have fully recovered from illness in time for Southend's trip.
The left-back was ruled out of Saturday's 1-0 victory over Crewe, forcing manager Paul Sturrock into his only change as Peter Gilbert was handed a recall.
Should Prosser prove his fitness then it will provide Sturrock with a defensive dilemma as the Shrimpers look to maintain their place at the summit of the table.
Bilel Mohsni overcame a first-half knock to his knee at the weekend to bag the only goal of the game and the winger should be okay to feature.
Fellow wide man David Martin shrugged off a foot injury to start the clash but was substituted just after the hour mark having not looked 100 per cent, yet he will be hoping to keep his place in Sturrock's starting XI against a Shots side who have won their last four.
Four of the best for Shots
Adam Mekki and Josh Payne scored in either half as Aldershot recorded a fourth successive victory and knocked Southend off the top of League Two.
Mekki not only opened the scoring for the home side just before the half-hour mark but also opened his Shots account as his strike deflected off Shrimpers defender Peter Gilbert.
Fellow midfielder Payne, signed on loan from Oxford until the rest of the season, sealed the 2-0 triumph from the penalty spot in the 64th minute after he was hauled down by goalkeeper Glenn Morris.
A cagey first half was brought to life in the 26th minute when Mekki burst past Gilbert before unleashing a shot which deflected wickedly off the left-back and looped over the rooted Morris.
Danny Hylton could have doubled the lead a minute later but toe-poked wide before Morris spilled an Anthony Straker free-kick just before the break but luckily saw it scrambled away to safety.
However, there was to be no let up for Southend as they dropped from first to third after Payne was brought down by a rash challenge from Morris and slotted home the resulting spot-kick.
