"I don’t need to sign a new goalkeeper,” he said to todays Star. “It is a shame for Scott but we have been hammered by injuries all season.”
Shearer is expected to be out for around a month.
Meanwhile Danny Kearns and Adam Morgan are set for their home debuts against Barnet on Saturday whilst youngsters Alec Denton and Mitch Rose have joined Evans' former club Stamford on month long loan deals.
