Grimsby defender Olly Lancashire is a doubt ahead of Shrewsbury`s visit to Blundell Park.

The on-loan centre-half is nursing a foot injury from the defeat at Dagenham & Redbridge. It was initially feared he had broken a bone but the 21-year-old was given the all-clear following a scan.

Lancashire has trained this week but he has yet to kick a ball and a late decision will be made on his fitness.

Goalkeeper Mark Oxley is in line for his home debut. He joined Town on loan from Hull last week and made his first appearance against the Daggers.

Paris Cowan-Hall continues to receive treatment for a hamstring injury at parent club Portsmouth. However, the midfielder resumed training this week and could be back in Cleethorpes within 10 days.

Striker Nathan Jarman serves the second game of a three-match suspension.

Dean Holden has joined already suspended Shane Cansdell-Sherriff on the sidelines for Shrewsbury.

Having missed last weekend`s 1-0 with over Bournemouth, Cansdell-Sherriff will serve the second game of his two-match ban for collecting 10 bookings this season.

And fellow defender Holden will now also miss out for the same offence, completing his ban with the home clash against leaders Rochdale next Saturday.

That presents manager Paul Simpson with a defensive dilemma at Blundell Park with two of his four first-choice defenders unavailable.

Midfielder Craig Disley remains on the treatment table with the broken ankle sustained at Rotherham.

Young forward Andre Gray has joined non-league Hinckley on a month-long loan to get some vital experience on the back of his spell at Telford, otherwise Simpson has a fully-fit squad to select from.
