The game was originally scheduled for Saturday March 23 but was postponed following the heavy snowfall that affected games throughout the country.
The Latics had hoped to arrange the clash at an earlier date, only to be denied permission.
A statement on Oldham's official website said: "Latics requested the match be played tonight (Monday March 25), but Shrewsbury were unable to rearrange it at such short notice saying police required 10-days notice."
