Midfielder Neal Bishop could be in contention having returned to training earlier this week following tonsillitis and a back issue.

Both Danny Rose (hamstring) and Hayden White (leg) will not feature due to injury although the latter is just a week away from a return to the training pitch.

Frontman Craig Davies will also miss out as he continues to feature for the reserves ahead of an anticipated return to the first team in the next few weeks.

The Stags come into the game off-the-back of a 1-0 defeat to Sky Bet League Two leaders Swindon Town. They progressed to the Emirates FA Cup second round with victory over Chorley.

Shrewsbury were also beaten on their most recent outing, losing 4-3 to Bristol Rovers. They made it to this stage of the FA Cup following a 1-0 win against Bradford City in a replay.
