Towering injury list for Macc men Macclesfield are set to be without full-back Tony Diagne and midfielder Lewis Chalmers for the npower League Two clash with promotion-chasing Shrewsbury.
The duo suffered groin injuries in last week's 2-0 defeat at Gillingham and add to a towering injury list for boss Brian Horton.
Defensive duo Paul Morgan (ankle) and Elliott Hewitt (hip) are out for the season along with midfielder Dwayne Mattis (ankle).
George Donnelly is absent in attack and faces a further fortnight on the sidelines with a hamstring injury, while fellow forward Ben Tomlinson (ankle/illness) will be assessed ahead of the game.
Horton is also sweating on the fitness of full-back Carl Tremarco (hamstring) and midfielder Sam Wedgbury (illness).
Macclesfield are without a win since their 2-1 victory over Port Vale on New Year's Eve and are second-bottom of the Football League, three points from safety.
Shrewsbury will be without Dave McAllister.
The on-loan midfielder saw red in last Saturday's 1-1 draw against Aldershot and, with Shrews having seen their subsequent appeal rejected by the Football Association, will now serve a three-match suspension.
But with McAllister only due to have three more games with Town before his maximum three-month stay expires, he has returned to parent club Sheffield United.
Manager Graham Turner has options available to him - with Sean McAllister competing for a start while makeshift full-back Matt Richards could be pushed back into his more natural midfield position and Joe Jacobson recalled into defence.
Winger Jon Taylor serves the second game of his three-match suspension, which only started against the Shots after the club's encounter against Port Vale - initially the first game of his ban - was abandoned and therefore void.
Macclesfield vs Shrewsbury

Shrews march past Silkmen Shrewsbury moved into the top three with a 3-1 win over struggling Macclesfield which extended the hosts' winless streak to 18 league games.
James Collins scored a brace for the promotion-chasing Shrews while Mark Wright netted the other, with Arnaud Mendy giving the Silkmen hope amid a late exchange of goals.
Shrews went close in the 29th minute when centre-back Ian Sharps headed wide at the far post from an inswinging corner.
But the visitors took the lead soon after when top scorer Collins was left unmarked to run at Ben Futcher and, despite being pulled back, found the far corner with a neat 15-yard finish.
Town nearly added another after 40 minutes but Sharps headed wide at the near post this time, before Macc striker Colin Daniel tried his luck from 25 yards at the other end only to see his attempt fly narrowly wide.
Wright tested Richard O'Donnell with a dipping 20-yard chip which the Macc goalkeeper tipped over the bar in the 54th minute.
But he made no mistake seven minutes from time when Jermaine Grandison curled an inch-perfect ball to the far corner for him to slide home.
