Accrington look to end a run of six defeats broken only by a rained off game at Littleborough when they face fifth placed East Lancs at The Property Shop Arena on Saturday.

East Lancs have six wins to date, including a 69 run win when the clubs met earlier in the season.

Toby Bulcock, Simon Hanson and Jimmy Hayhurst are back for Accrington in place of Mohammed Tayyib, Andrew Greenwood and Jon Hayhurst.

Eli Smith and Aadil Waghat return for East Lancs in place of skipper Mark Bolton and Niall Boyle. John Turner stands in as captain.

The seconds game at East Lancs which was due to be played on Saturday will now be played on Sunday July 24th due to Eid.

The thirds game at Nelson which should have been played on Sunday will now be played on Saturday July 16th due to Sunday's Junior Cup semi final.

On Sunday the seconds go to Dill Hall Lane to face Enfield in the semi finals of the Junior Cup.

The clubs have both won three of the previous six meetings in the Junior Cup with Accrington winning the last time the clubs met in 2012.

Lowerhouse take on Great Harwood in the other semi final for a place in the final which will be played on Saturday August 6th.
