Hill boost for Blades
Sheffield United defender Matt Hill could return to the squad for the trip to Shrewsbury.
Hill has been sidelined since breaking his jaw five weeks ago but returned to full training this week and is expected to be included.
New signings Jonathan Forte and Barry Robson could make their first starts for the club.
Striker Forte returned to Bramall Lane on loan on transfer deadline day from Southampton and former Scotland international Robson has signed until the end of the season following his release from Major League Soccer side Vancouver Whitecaps.
Central defender Neill Collins will continue at the heart of defence after recently returning with the aid of a protective mask. He suffered a triple fracture of his cheekbone on Boxing Day.
The Blades, whose midweek home game with Crawley was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, are chasing their first league win in six matches.
