BURNLEY travelled to Enfield on Sunday looking to repeat the victory against the hosts from a couple of weeks ago - but their Accrington opponents ran out comfortable winnners.

Steve Brunt’s side were looking well placed as they started their batting and eased to 75-1 from their first 23 overs.

Qasim Ali continued his good run, scoring 18, Dan Pickup made 24 and Bharat Tripathi 19 to set a good platform.

But disaster struck as first Pickup was run out following a mix up, and then next ball Tripathi was caught at deep mid wicket.

This changed the whole momentum of a the game as Enfield professional Werner Coetsee gained the upper hand and finished with figures of 6-45 to leave Burnley a dissapointing 112 all out.

In reply Enfield started aggressively and rode their luck and were 49-0 off 10 overs.

Professional Adnan Rasool took the wicket of Sagwat Hussain, caught on the boundary, but the runs continued with Coetsee at a run a ball 24 until he skied a catch to Ali off Tripathi.

Enfield ran out easy winners with only two wickets down and 24 overs left.

Burnley visit Todmorden on Friday in the Twenty20 and entertain East Lancashire on Sunday in the league.

On Saturday the second team visit Haslingden in the junior cup quarter-final.
