The now traditional pre-season friendly between Accrington Stanley and Burnley, scheduled for next Tuesday will now not go ahead afterall due to pitch problems at the Crown Ground.

The ground suffered heavily last season due to the inclement weather with a number of Clarets Reserves fixtures scheduled to be played there having to be postponed.

Heavy rain this time has slowed down the pitch improvements underway at the Crown Ground so the two clubs have agreed to call off their friendly.

Brian Laws however is hoping to schedule another pre-season friendly when his squad returns from their tour of Singapore on Monday.
