Joe Thompson and Ash Taylor were both forced off the field after sustaining injuries against the Blue Square Bet Premier side, adding to an already lengthy list of absentees.

Thompson's thigh strain and Taylor's hamstring problem is set to rule both players out of the Friday night clash with MK Dons.

Moore said: "The injuries are ridiculous. Another wide man goes with a thigh strain, a centre-half goes off with a hamstring injury.

"We'll be very lucky if we can patch a side together for the MK Dons clash on Friday."

Moore added: "Overall, I'm pleased with the result. It wasn't a sparkling performance but when you come to grounds like this you have to knuckle down and that's what we did."

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
