A maiden league century by Daniel Pickup helped Burnley to reverse yesterday's loss by handing former joint league leaders and cup semi final opponents Accrington their second defeat of the season by 76 runs at Turf Moor. Pickup's epic knock of 115 spanned 154 balls and contained eleven fours and a six. He put on 82 with Ben Law (31) and 49 with Jeeva Kulatunga who made 25 before being bowled attempting a reverse sweep at Paul Carroll. Mohammed Jamal (35 not out) also helped the opener put on 92 for the 3rd wicket and the innings closed on 227-3. Kulatunga then removed both openers Carroll (11) and Matt Wilson (8) but it was James Capstick who proved to be the match winner, picking up 6-44 as Accrington were bowled out for 151. Stuart Crabtree top scored with 44 in Accrington's reply, Graham Lloyd made 26, Roy Silva 20 and Simon Hanson 13 before being superbly caught at mid wicket by Steve Brunt off Bharat Tripathi (2-52) for 13.
