Ben Whiteman: Doncaster Rovers Sign Sheffield United Midfielder

Luke Hendrie will be available again for Shrewsbury against Doncaster.

The midfielder, recently signed from Burnley, was unavailable for the midweek FA Cup replay against West Ham having been registered after the initial clash. Hendrie is yet to make his debut for the Shrews having been an unused substitute against Blackburn, but he could be in line for his bow this time.
