Accrington visit East Lancs on Sunday looking for a first win of the season.

The clubs had contrasting starts on the opening day with East Lancs taking maximum points at Nelson whilst Accrington went down to a 4 wicket defeat to local rivals Church.

Harsha Rajapaksha will again stand in as sub pro for East Lancs who bring in Niall Boyle in place of Adam Bolton.

Accrington name an unchanged team. Weekend teams.

The seconds host East Lancs on Sunday in the reverse fixture.

Jimmy Hayhurst comes in to the team for his first game of the season.

Saturday's third team match at Rochdale has been postponed and will be re-arranged.

This season's Looking Back Feature takes us back to 1992 when Dipak Patel was professional. Accrington won their first home game beating a Burnley team including former footballer Leighton James on April 26th.
