Graham Burke has joined Shrewsbury on loan

The Aston Villa forward signed for the Shrews on Thursday on loan until January and goes straight into contention as Graham Turner's side go in search of their first win of the new season.

Burke's arrival comes after striker John Marsden was ruled out for between six to eight weeks having broken a bone in his foot during Tuesday's Capital One Cup defeat to Bolton.

Centre-back Dave Winfield faces a similar spell on the sidelines with his hamstring injury while on-loan striker Akwasi Asante (hamstring) is also not quite ready.
