Jon Taylor is set to miss Shrewsbury's Boxing Day clash at home to Notts County.

The in-form winger put Town in front with his third goal in as many games against Bury on Friday night before being forced off with a hamstring injury late on, after which the home side responded with a 90th-minute equaliser to secure a 2-2 draw.

Manager Graham Turner said: "It looks as though he may have tweaked a hamstring and that looks pretty serious with the games coming thick and fast, I've just got to hope it's not too bad."

Luke Rodgers managed an hour against the Shakers despite struggling with illness but should be okay to line up against his former employers.

Shrews are already without midfielder Luke Summerfield, who has been forced to undergo a hernia operation having been playing through the pain barrier.

But Mark Wright will be assessed as he aims to make his return from a knee injury.
