Under League rules, clubs in administration cannot sign players if they have 20 or more professionals already on their books.

But Ablett is hoping to be able to play Chelsea loanee Bridcutt in place of young midfielder Matty Mainwaring - who is currently sidelined for six months with a broken leg.

Goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams is Ablett's only other injury concern.

The Wales Under-21 international injured his hand in the warm-up prior to Tuesday night's clash with Carlisle, but he is expected to be fit for the trip.
