May 30 (Reuters) - Fenner Plc, a maker of conveyor belts for the mining industry, warned it might miss market expectations for full-year profit due to weakness in the U.S. coal sector and its failure to clinch an Australian iron ore contract.

Fenner, which has been hit by a slowdown in the global mining industry, said underlying pretax profit would be 10 to 15 percent lower than Bloomberg's current market estimate of 77.6 million pounds ($129.72 million).
