Alfie understood my decision - Moore

20 goal Le Fondre was left out of the 18 man squad for the 2-1 defeat, and after raging about the last minute controversial winner that cost his side a point, Moore explained why his talisman didn't travel.

"In the last few games he's looked jaded, so we rested him", said the gaffer to the press.

"We thought we'd come here with a different strategy and as far as that went it was fine but we just didn't get the break or the goal. I thought Adam needed a little break and he understands what the situation is and hopefully he'll be nice and fresh for the Bury game."

Moore also added that he would like to extend the deals of his loanees.

"I'd like to be able to bring them both in to the end of the season, and maybe even longer" he added.

"The problem we have with Coid's loan being nearly up and him coming off injured again is that Johnny Mullins can play right-back but he's playing ever so well centrally at the minute.

"Though it does ease the problem if Ryan Cresswell is fit because Cressie can go in there and Mullins can move to right-back.

'But, we are still looking and if we can find one that we think is good enough then we will definitely bring him in whilst looking to do something with Calum and Liam aswell."
