The experienced defender arrived on a one-month loan deal on deadline day and will fill the void left by Jermaine Grandison, who has been ruled out for six weeks with a hip injury.
Turner expects to welcome back striker Luke Rodgers, who missed the goalless draw against Bury through illness.
Turner will hope the forward can find his scoring touch, as Town have netted just two goals in their last six games.
The Shrews boss has watched his side fail to win any of their last four games and they sit five points above the drop zone.
They remain without midfield duo Mark Wright and Ryan Doble, who have not featured since the turn of the year duo to knee and hand problems respectively.
