Shrewsbury Town Vs Barnet, Sat 8 Oct 2011

Published Add your comment

Shrewsbury skipper Ian Sharps hopes to come back into full contention for the visit of Barnet.

Sharps returned as an unused substitute for last Friday`s 3-0 defeat at Southend having missed the previous two matches with a calf injury.

The centre-back suffered some minor ill-effects during training on Monday and was briefly forced back to the sidelines before returning alongside his team-mates on Thursday. Should he not experience any further problems then he will be available for selection.

Striker Tom Bradshaw misses out due to international duty with Wales` Under-21s.

Reuben Hazell is looking at around four months on the sidelines after scans showed a torn cruciate ligament in his knee, although he does not require surgery.

Fellow defender Carl Regan returned to training on Thursday after a lengthy absence with a calf problem but he is short of match practice.

Danny Senda could return for Barnet but boss Lawrie Sanchez still has problems in defence.

Right-back Senda is hoping to be fit after a fortnight out with a hamstring injury, but left-back Jordan Parkes and centre-half Darren Dennehy are doubts.

Parkes missed Tuesday night's Johnstone's Paint Trophy win at Gillingham with an ankle injury and Dennehy was a late withdrawal due to a chest infection.

Sanchez could recall striker Steve Kabba, who was rested in midweek, and also has a goalkeeping dilemma after Liam O'Brien got a rare chance ahead of regular number one Dean Brill and impressed with a string of fine saves.

Forward Ricky Holmes remains on the sidelines after he suffered concussion during last weekend's 2-1 defeat by Northampton.
