Accrington host Sunderland in this evening’s only League One action. Kick-off at The Crown Ground is 7.45pm. If Stanley lose, we can go above them in the table with a win on Saturday. Sunderland are unbeaten in 16 league games, but have drawn nine of those. Stanley have won just two of their last 14. The two sides originally met back in December, but the game was abandoned after 72 minutes due to a waterlogged pitch.

Rochdale have appointed caretaker boss Brian Barry-Murphy as their permanent manager. The ex-Dale midfielder, 40, has been given a two-year contract after he won eight points from four games following the sacking of Keith Hill on March 4. Dale remain in the League One drop zone on goal difference.

Coventry City are looking to ground-share in order to avoid being expelled from the EFL. They are trying to reach an agreement to stay at the Ricoh Arena for one more season at least.

Kingstonian are continuing their ground-share agreement with Corinthian-Casuals. The Isthmian Premier sides have come to terms on a one-year extension on their current deal which sees both sides play home fixtures at King George’s Field, Tolworth.

We are trialling this Daily Update feature all week. Please let us know your thoughts. Would you like us to continue with it? Are we wasting our time? Would it work with some minor tweaking? Will AJ Styles and Randy Orton steal the show at WrestleMania? Comment below or email 9yrs@may14.co.uk. Thank you!

ON THIS DAY – 1993. Oldham hammer Wimbledon 6-2 in a Premier League clash at Boundary Park, avenging their 5-2 hiding at Selhurst Park earlier in the season. The game saw the Dons collect their fourth red card of the season, with Gerald Dobbs, dismissed for handball, joining Vinnie Jones, Gary Elkins, and Brian McAllister on the suspended list.

By drubbing Crystal Palace 4-0 a few days later, we effectively improved Oldham’s goal difference by eight in their relegation battle with Palace – a battle they won by virtue of a superior goal difference of two, after both sides accumulated 49 league points. And 26 years later, we’re still finding that kinda funny. Highlights on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y29G4rSXMs4

    Great feature, would read every day if available except for ‘on this day’ which I personally don’t find of interest.

    Wonder if as this is published at the end of the day it should be called ‘Daily Summary’? Just a thought
