Shrewsbury could be without Ollie Norburn for their Sky Bet League One clash with relegation-threatened Scunthorpe on Saturday.

The midfielder remains a doubt with an Achilles injury sustained against Southend.

Norburn could be replaced by Josh Laurent in the centre of midfield after the 23-year-old impressed in the second half against the Shrimpers.

Goalkeeper Steve Arnold remains on the Shrews’ injury list after picking up a hamstring problem in the 2-0 defeat to Portsmouth and is expected to miss another four weeks.

Caretaker Scunthorpe boss Andy Dawson will have Kevin Van Veen available for Saturday’s match.

The forward came off with a hamstring injury during the Iron’s 2-1 defeat to AFC Wimbledon but has trained all week and will be in contention.

On the long-term injured list, Matthew Lund, Josh Morris and Jordan Clarke have all returned to training on grass this week and are getting closer to a return.

Dawson has no fresh injuries to contend with.
