Shrewsbury striker Tom Bradshaw is expected to be out for around two to three weeks due to an ankle knock sustained on international duty.

The 18-year-old picked up the injury while representing Wales' Under-19 side in their recent clash against Kazakhstan. However, the problem is not as bad as first feared and Bradshaw should be back by mid-November.

Boss Graham Turner told Town's official website: "It's a blow for a young man like Tom as he's starting to push for the first team.

He added: "He has been on the bench regularly for us but hasn't been a regular starter so it won't knock things around too much for us.

"It looks like it is only an ankle sprain which means Tom will be missing for only a few weeks, which is good news."
