First published in League news

Accrington v Bacup

Matt Wilson and David Ormerod replace Jake Clarke and Sam Tattersall in the Accrington side as they play their second game of the weekend. But they are without Graham Lloyd.

Bacup batsman Tim Farragher made back-to-back half-centuries last weekend and will look to maintain that run as David Warren’s men go in search of a second win of the league season.
Key Man: Tim Farragher
Donlan says: Accrington

Burnley v Enfield

Michael Kelly is missing for Steve Brunt’s otherwise full strength Burnley as they look for their second win of the season when Enfield arrive at Turf Moor.

Adam Bracewell’s men boast the league’s in-form professional in the shape of Werner Coetsee and look to follow up last weekend’s demolition of Haslingden with a fourth win of the campaign.
Key Man: Bharat Tripathi
Donlan says: Enfield

Church v Nelson

Levi Wolfenden is playing despite suffering from shin splints as Church look to cement their second place in the table. Craig Fergusson’s side also features veteran batsman Phil Sykes.

Nelson’s double-winning weekend last week lifted spirits around Seedhill and Neil Thompson has strike bowler Richard Meade fit agai, while Chris Willan comes into the side for the West End clash.
Key Man: Andrew Bentley
Donlan says: Church

Haslingden v Lowerhouse

Haslingden stunned Todmorden in the Worsley Cup last Sunday - but that win followed on from a league hammering at the hands of Enfield.

Reigning champions Lowerhouse go to Bentgate looking to make it six league wins from six but without all-rounder Jonathan Finch.
Key Man: Joe Hawke
Donlan says: Lowerhouse

Ramsbottom v East Lancashire

Bowler Andy Hakin is still out with injury as Jonathan Fielding’s Ramsbottom look to get their season back on track against East Lancashire a week after the sides met in the Worsley Cup.

East Lancs won that cup tie and professional Ockert Erasmus is hoping his men can kick on and find a run of form to lift them up the table. They name a squad including Alex Redhead, Mark Lomas, David Turner and Mark Bolton.
Key Man: Jonathan Fielding
Donlan says: Ramsbottom

Rawtenstall v Colne

Rawtenstall hand a debut to professional Jandre Coetsee after the South African’s delayed arrival in the UK but there is no Andrew Payne Colne travel to Bacup Road at full strength but struggling in the table in 13th spot, just one place above their hosts who have yet to win a game this season.
Key Man: Matt Wilson
Donlan says: Rawtenstall

Rishton v Todmorden

Ali Sartaj, Scott Greaves and Shaun Wyse return in place of Irfan Muhammed, Ben Bridson and Mark Leathert as Rishton aim to maintain an impressive start to the season with professional Daniel Salpietro really catching the eye.

Todmorden suffered a nightmare weekend last time round as they lost in both league and Worsley Cup. They are without James Morgan for the trip to Blackburn Road but there is a place for veteran Stuart Priestley as they look to bounce back.
Key Man: Simon Newbitt
Donlan says: Todmorden
