Shane Cansdell-Sherriff makes a welcome return for Shrewsbury`s home clash against a Lincoln side who will be out to impress new boss Steve Tilson.

The defender has missed Town`s last two games due to a groin injury picked up in training but he returns to the fold on Saturday as Shrews look to end a five-match winless streak.

His return just leaves long-term absentees Kris Bright (Achilles) and Nathan Elder (knee) as the only two in the treatment room.

Craig Disley recovered from an ankle knock to take his place on the bench for last weekend`s 1-0 defeat at Morecambe but could find himself promoted back into Graham Turner`s XI, while Steve Leslie, Lewis Neal and Tom Bradshaw are also pushing for a starting berth.

Calvin Zola`s proposed move from Crewe fell through earlier in the week but Turner remains on the lookout for quality players to boost his ranks.

And those at his disposal will have to be at the top of their game at the Greenhous Meadow to counter a Lincoln outfit who will be looking to prove their worth to Tilson, who officially starts his new role on Monday after being appointed on Friday morning.

Lincoln will be without veteran striker Delroy Facey.

The striker is on international duty with Grenada ahead of his nation`s Caribbean Cup qualifying fixtures next week. He will also miss the visit of Stockport on October 23.

Drewe Broughton could make a timely return from the leg injury that ruled him out of the home victory over Macclesfield last weekend. He trained on Thursday and will be assessed.

However, fellow forward Andy Hutchinson is two or three weeks away from a return to training as he continues to recover from a broken metatarsal. Defender Paul Green (thigh) also remains out.

Scott Lindsey will be in caretaker control for the final time before new Imps boss Steve Tilson takes over on Monday after he was appointed as Chris Sutton`s successor.
