The Cod Army have won just one of their last six games, albeit an emphatic 4-0 win away at high flying Doncaster Rovers last time out in the league, but they are still aiming for the play-off places.
The Shrews, however, will be full of confidence after two impressive victories, firstly against Accrington Stanley before a 6-0 demolition of Tranmere Rovers in midweek.
Fleetwood boss, Joey Barton, knows that Shrewsbury will be a challenging test when kick-off arrives.
He said: “We’ve got a very, very tough fixture this Saturday against a team that were in the Play-Offs last year.
“[They’re] changing their identity a bit this year and will be difficult to play against due their combative style of play.”
The Cod Army have a number of players returning from injuries, with Tommy Spurr back in training. Meanwhile, Conor McAleny and Dean Marney are also “back on the grass” and pushing for a start this weekend.
Captain, Craig Morgan, and Ash Eastham completed 45 minutes each on Tuesday night and are therefore back in contention.
James Husband is the only player ruled out with a hamstring strain.
Barton went on to say: “Hubby (James Husband) is at Norwich, I think so he’s being assessed by them until Sunday and I think he is back with us Monday.
“It is probably going to be for a couple of weeks with a hamstring strain.”
The Shrews have a fully fit squad to choose from having managed to go another week unscathed. Forward Fejiri Okenabirhie is pushing for a start after his midweek hat trick against Rovers.
Fleetwood Town – Cairns, Coyle, Eastham, Morgan, Spurr, R. Wallace, Taylor, J. Wallace, Hunter, Evans, Madden.
Shrewsbury Town – Coleman, Emmanuel, Waterfall, Sadler, Beckles. Grant, Norburn, Laurent, Okenabirhie, Angol, Gilliead.
