The pair are both big doubts ahead of the weekend Sky Bet League Two clash.

Morgan started alongside Marlon Harewood, with in-form Fenwick missing through an ankle injury picked up on Monday.

Moore said: “Fenwick is a doubt for Saturday [against Stevenage] with his ankle.

“Matthew Bates is touch and go too, he had some really bad swelling from the dead leg.”
