How to protect young tomato plants from cold nights?

Hello, I'm growing tomatoes in 5-gallon containers inside a small polyethylene greenhouse. They were transplanted 5 days ago and I assume their root system is not well-established. I've watered them only once so far and I can feel the first 2 inches of soil are dry. The temperatures are expected to go below 40 tonight and I'm wondering how to help them stay warm. Should I water them? Can I mulch them with composted sheep manure? Waiting for your opinions. Thanks in advance!
