The manager says Hibernian will be up for the challenge of smashing County's proud home record and are ready to fight for maximum points.
Fenlon said: "We'll approach this match in the way that we've approached every game - we'll go and try to win it.
"It's a difficult venue like any venue that we've gone to so far, their record there is fantastic - to go 40-odd games unbeaten is great.
"But we've said before that we know it's going to be really difficult and we know that we'll have to scrap and fight for anything that we're going to get up there."
In an eight-minute interview, Fenlon reveals that right-back Tim Clancy is an injury doubt while midfielder Gary Deegan is still expected to be sidelined with a broken jaw for a number of weeks.
He added: "Obviously Gary is going to be out for a little while and Tim Clancy has a bit of a groin problem so we'll see how he is in the morning before we make a decision on him.
"But everyone else trained today. Jorge (Claros) didn't do a lot of running and (Ryan) McGivern did very little as well, but both of them will be okay."
With Deegan definitely ruled out, Fenlon admits it leaves him with a selection dilemma; whether to introduce new signing Tom Taiwo or re-enlist the services of last season's Player of the Year, Lewis Stevenson.
He said: "The fact we can call upon Lewis or Tom is great. Without being disrespectful to the younger players, we're not looking to throw a young boy into a really difficult game up in Dingwall.
"We've got Lewis, who has been different class since I've come into the place - he's been injured this year and probably hasn't played as much so he's really champing at the bit.
"Tom has come in and trained really well and he's now ready to play and he's played and got a lot of games under his belt at League One level in England.
"So we've got two really good players and it's a choice for me to make. It's obviously a difficult one as well, but I'm sure whichever one comes in will do himself justice."
Alex Harris became the latest under-20s player to be promoted into the first team when he was handed his debut against Dundee and Fenlon stresses that he is delighted with the quality coming up through the ranks at the club.
He said: "I've been delighted with him, on top of Sammy (Stanton), Ross Caldwell and Danny Handling, they've really made great progress.
"There are a few other boys in that category, the likes of Harry Monaghan and Dean Horribine, who have done really well in the under-20 team and it's important that we keep pushing them and progressing them.
"We have brought in experienced players this season, but that's two-fold, obviously it's to strengthen the team and make it better, but also to help the younger players.
"The key to that is that we've got more experience, good professionals and that's a big key in development of younger players that both on and off the park they're able to see what the senior players do whether it be in training or off the pitch."
