Accrington Stanley continued their preparations for the upcoming Sky Bet League One campaign with a surprise 2-1 victory over Marseille.

The rugby posts were removed at the AJ Bell Stadium, home of rugby league side Salford Red Devils, to host the clash between Stanley and the nine-time Ligue 1 champions.

Sean McConville and Offrande Zanzala were on the scoresheet to give John Coleman's side a 2-0 lead at the break, before World Cup winner Florian Thauvin hit back late on.

Thauvin wasn't the only star name on Marseille team sheet, so too was Dimitri Payet, Jordan Amavin, Luiz Gustavo and Kevin Strootman.
