ENFIELD'S Mas Ahmed believes his side are getting stronger as the season goes on.

The Dill Hall Lane side have yet to win a league game, largely due to having only a young side to choose from on Saturdays until the end of the football season.

But Ahmed believes ENFIELD will continue to impress, following the arrival of professional Alviro Peterson two weeks ago, although he admits tomorrow's home game against Nelson will be tough.

"They are possibly the strongers team in the league," he said.

"Their professional seems to be bowling with a bit of pace and they have got The Godfather of the Lancashire League in Joe Scuderi!

"But we will be somewhere near to full strength tomorrow."

NELSON are looking to get back to winning ways and may retain a side that was changed for today's meeting with Church.

Middle order batsman David Crotty was replaced by Chris Heap as the youngster has been struggling to find form.

COLNE have been boosted by the return of Geoff Ellis from suspension and Andre Adams from injury for the visit of Church.

All-rounder Ellis has completed an eight match ban for pushing an umpire last season, while Adams -- who missed last Sunday's victory at Burnley with a groin injury, is expected to be fit.

Chairman, Trevor Lonsdale said: "It's been a stop and start season for us so far so hopefully we'll get some stability and get some wins under our belt."

CHURCH are again without Andrew Bentley for Sunday's game. Sam Holt will also keep his place in the team following the news that Craig Fergusson has left the club following a disagreement.

RAWTENSTALL face East Lancs for the third time in six weeks and will be hoping for better fortunes this time around.

Having drawn in the Colne Cup and lost in the Worsley Cup, chairman, Brian Payne, believes his side are due a victory.

"It's unbelievable that we have met so many so early in the season. But after a draw and a defeat, it is about time we got one over them."

EAST LANCS, meanwhile, are confident of serving up a repeat of their victory over Rawtenstall in the Worsley Cup as South African professional Quinton Friend begins to find his feet in the league.

"The pro's beginning to generate some genuine pace and now it's just a case of him finding the right areas to bowl on our wickets because they're different to what he's used to," said Paul Kelly, the East Lancs skipper.

HASLINGDEN bring in South African Justin Kreusch from Blackpool, who subbed for them last Sunday, for the visit to unbeaten leaders Lowerhouse.

But cricket chairman Stuart Taylor said: "If we play to our capabilities there's no reason why we can't win."

LOWERHOUSE'S bowling attack will be missing Jez Hope and Saeed Riaz, so the capable Matt Marquis and Ben Heap step up from the second team.

RAMSBOTTOM, who are at home to Burnley, are still wthout injured pro Murali Kartik but manager Mike Everett is buzzing after last weekend's victrory over champions East Lancs.

He said: "To get them out for 95 was a tremendous achievement and gives the whole team a real boost."

BURNLEYMiddle-order batsman Jamie Carter is added to the squad for tomorrow's trip to Ramsbottom as the Turf Moor outfit look for an overdue upturn in fortunes.

BACUP are unchanged for the trip to Rishton, knowing only a win is good enough to maintain their title hopes.

The club will be looking for more runs from professional Chris Simpson, who was out for a duck last weekend.

In the meantime, RISHTON are still without their captain, Jonathon Dobson, who has missed the last three weeks with a leg injury.

Dobson is hoping to return next week but Scott Greaves will continue to take charge of team affairs in his absence.

Hard-hitting batsman, Mark Leathert, is also set to make his first start of the season against Bacup tomorrow after returning from university.

ACCRINGTON professional Tama Canning will be hoping his first century of the season, in the win over Rawtenstall last Sunday, is the start of things to come.

The Thorneyholme Road side, who will be fresh after not having a fixture today, are set to be unchanged yet again for their trip to Todmorden.

Bowler Damien Clarke will be bidding to top what he hopes will be a memorable weekend.

The Accrington vice captain will return from cheering Manchester United on in today's FA Cup Final at the Millennium Stadium in time for tomorrow's game.

Stuart Priestley's TODMORDEN side are on agreat run of form with four wins in five - their only defeat being at the hands of leaders Lowerhouse.

With two home dates over the weekend - they play Rawtenstall at Centre Vale today - they may make a change as Abbas could play in place of Lee Pearson.
