The 22-year-old missed our defeat at Plymouth last weekend due to a minor muscle strain but will be available for the Shrewsbury clash at Hillsborough.

Everton loanee Lewis Gibson (quad) remains sidelined, while Josh Windass and Massimo Luongo continue with their rehabilitation programme from hamstring injuries.
