Tony McMahon and Matt Hill (both hamstring) are doubtful for Saturday's clash with Stevenage, according to Danny Wilson.
Speaking at his weekly press conference, boss Wilson confirmed the duo, forced off after sustaining the injuries in the first-half at MK Dons, are unlikely to feature in arguably the game of the day in League One on Saturday:
"Both are struggling, we have got another 48 hours or so to see whether they will be available or not, but I am preparing without them.
"It remains too early to say how long they will both be missing for, hopefully it is sooner rather than later but it won't affect our preparations. It is a major blow because both have played very well this season and it no coincidence that we have had so many clean sheets with them in the team.
"They are experienced players, but we have to cope without them, even if the dynamics of the team changes again."
With no loan moves looking imminent, Wilson confirmed some of his squad players will be given a chance in the absence of the aforementioned duo and the Gaffer is confident they will be up to the challenge:
"In an ideal world we would love to have them both available but we have some good young players waiting in the wings and they won't let anyone down.
"At the moment we will go with what we have got, although the squad remains very thin of the ground. We have to make the most of what we have available because we won't have any reinforcements in before the weekend."
