Accrington visit next to bottom club Nelson on Sunday.

Both clubs have wins over leaders Littleborough in the last two weeks.

Accrington go in to the match on the back of two successive wins.

When the clubs met in June Nelson came out on top.

Accrington make three changes with David Ormerod, Matt Taylor and Alice Clarke replacing Simon Hanson, George Mills and Kian Farnworth.

Caleb Lister and Chris Gildea replace Neil Thompson and Joe Whitlam in the Nelson team.

The start time moves forward to 12.30 for the last four matches of the season for first and second team fixtures.

The seconds host Nelson on Sunday in the reverse fixture. This match has now been cancelled.

The thirds have a double header over the Bank Holiday weekend hosting Lowerhouse 4th XI on Saturday and travelling to Ramsbottom on Bank Holiday Monday.
