Fleetwood are without on-loan left-back James Husband for the Sky Bet League One clash with Shrewsbury.

Husband suffered a recurrence of a hamstring injury in last week’s win at Doncaster and has returned to parent club Norwich for assessment. He is expected to rejoin Fleetwood next week. Midfielder James Wallace has been passed fit after being withdrawn midway through last week’s game as a precaution.

Midfielder Bobby Grant remains outside the first-team group after a disagreement with manager Joey Barton while Tommy Spurr, Conor McAleny and Dean Marney are not yet ready to return after injuries.
