Rose absence a thorn in Simpson's side
Stockport boss Paul Simpson is still without Jordan Rose and Robbie Williams as he prepares for the visit of Shrewsbury.
The summer signings are nursing injuries and at least two other players are nursing knocks ahead of Simpson`s reunion with his former club.
Those players will be assessed but Rose and Williams look certain to miss out.
Simpson`s men are without a win this season but the County manager insists he has no axe to grind with the club that sacked him in April.
Simpson was shown the door by Shrewsbury towards the end of last season after their League Two play-off hopes were all but ended.
Simpson said: "Saturday is a game we want to win because we're at home, and it's another chance to get three points against a good side."M
Shrewsbury will hope to welcome back Lionel Ainsworth for the match.
The winger missed the 2-1 Carling Cup defeat to Stoke after picking up a groin strain in the Shrews' 1-1 draw with Aldershot last week, however the club expect him to be fit to travel to Edgeley Park.
Matt Harrold could also return to the forward line after serving a one-game suspension following his sending off against the Shots.
Fellow striker Kris Bright may come back into the squad after his recovery from illness but he is short of match fitness so is unlikely to start.
Defender Shane Cansdell-Sheriff will probably continue in Danny O'Donnell's absence as the latter is out with a suspected hernia.
Nathan Elder (knee) remains a long-term injury victim with knee ligament damage.
Shrews stroll on
Shrewsbury continued their excellent start to the season with a comprehensive 4-0 win over a demoralised Stockport at Edgeley Park.
Goals from Jake Robinson and Matt Harrold, and a brace from Mark Wright, underlined the visitors' dominance in a performance which must make them one of the early favourites for promotion.
Despite their superiority, it took the Shrews 40 minutes to break the deadlock, when leading scorer Robinson expertly placed his shot wide of Owain fon Williams in the Stockport goal for a 1-0 half-time lead.
A double substitution by County manager Paul Simpson 10 minutes into the second half failed to stop the visitors and just three minutes later Harold dispossessed Danny Swailes on the edge of the County box and fired home a second.
The rampant visitors then added a third less than five minutes later as a sweeping move saw Wright slide in at the far post for the goal of the game.
Wright's second came with just eight minutes of the game remaining, by which time the home side had become bereft of ideas and inspiration and lost their shape at the back.
