The centre half went down after playing a pass under no pressure during the first half at Spotland and was in immediate distress.

Baptiste was carried off the pitch, shaking his head with Moore confirming afterwards the 33-year-old had suffered an ankle injury and was being assessed in hospital.

While uncertain of any diagnosis, Moore said he was not expecting good news.

"The only thing I can say is it doesn't look good but we'll wait and see," Moore said.
