Torquay manager Paul Buckle is set to include new signing Ronan Murray in his squad to face promotion-hopefuls Shrewsbury.

Murray has signed on loan for the rest of the season from npower Championship side Ipswich and providing all the necessary paperwork is completed in time, the young striker will take his place in the Gulls' squad.

Fellow striker Billy Kee lasted only 27 minutes of the game against Stevenage at the weekend due to an ankle injury but after coming off the bench in midweek, may be recalled to Buckle's starting line-up.

If Kee is still not deemed to be fully fit, Danny Stevens will continue to deputise.

Craig Stanley, who arrived at Plainmoor in January on loan from Morecambe, is set to get the nod in midfield once again after impressing in recent weeks.

Shrewsbury are expected to have Matt Harrold available for the trip.

The seven-goal striker missed Tuesday`s 2-2 draw with Port Vale as he continued to struggle with tonsillitis, but he trained on Thursday and manager Graham Turner expects him to be in contention.

Defender Mat Sadler, who conceded the penalty from which Vale equalised, emerged from the clash with a dead leg but is also expected to be passed fit.

Midfielder Sean McAllister has resumed training again following his hernia operation while striker Nathan Elder (knee) continues to make progress after his return from a lengthy lay-off. Although the trip to Plainmoor comes too soon for either of them to be involved.

Shrews striker Jake Robinson is allowed to line up against his parent club as part of the deal which took him to Torquay on loan in January.
