Aldershot could have top scorer Marvin Morgan back in their starting XI when Shrewsbury visit The Rec.

Morgan made his return from a back injury at Bradford last weekend as a substitute but could not prevent a 2-1 defeat for Kevin Dillon's side.

Morgan is fit enough to start now, however, as Dillon looks for a reaction to two straight defeats.

Anthony Charles will continue to deputise at left-back as Andy Sandell remains out with a hamstring injury but fellow defender Dave Winfield is in contention to return from a hamstring pull of his own.

Midfielder John Halls is unlikely to feature again this season after complications hampered his recovery from groin surgery.

Shrewsbury striker Dave Hibbert stands "a good chance" of being fit for the trip, according to manager Paul Simpson.

The 24-year-old sustained a groin injury in training last Thursday and was expected to be out for up to a month. But having missed last weekend`s 1-0 defeat to leaders Rochdale, he could now be back in the frame.

With the problem not as serious as first anticipated, Hibbert`s speedy recovery will come as a huge boost to the club`s promotion hopes.

Dean Holden also returns from suspension but Town will, however, will be without the services of fellow defender Shane Cansdell-Sherriff after he saw red on his his comeback against Dale, meaning he now serves another one-match ban.

Midfielder Craig Disley, who is currently on the sidelines undergoing rehabilitation on his broken ankle, will undergo a hernia operation next week. However, it is not expected to delay his return and he is still looking at the end of April.

Former Town striker Omer Riza should make Shots` matchday 18 having signed a short-term deal with the Hampshire outfit last month, although he is unlikely to start.
