Andrew Tutte will be assessed by Shrewsbury as he looks to make his debut in the Boxing Day clash at home to Bury.

The on-loan Manchester City midfielder is yet to pull on a Shrews shirt having been hampered by a back problem since his switch towards the end of November.

However, he has not missed much on-field action with matches against Accrington and Oxford postponed and just a 1-1 draw against Cheltenham to keep Town fans warm over the past four-and-a-half wintry weeks.

Midfielders Benjamin van den Broek (knee) and Craig Disley (hip) will both miss the entire festive period with their respective injuries.

Winger Lionel Ainsworth is likely to get more minutes under his belt and may even start against the Shakers having made an 11-minute cameo upon his return from a groin injury against Cheltenham.

Bury boss Alan Knill should have defender Phil Picken available.

Picken returned to training recently after recovering from an ankle knock and would have been in contention for last weekend's home clash with Stevenage had it not been postponed.

Young midfielder Max Harrop is suspended while Cameron Belford and Andy Bishop are still not match fit after long-term injuries.

Knill is satisfied with his side's progress this season and is confident they can maintain their push for promotion.

The Shakers narrowly missed out on the League Two play-offs last term but they currently lie third to encourage hopes of going up automatically.

Knill said: "We've now got to keep the momentum going and see where it takes us."
