Having last played over a week ago, boss Adam Hinshelwood has a fresh squad available to him, apart from the unfortunate absence of captain Darren Budd, who suffered a fractured fibula in The Mackerel’s humiliating 6-0 loss to Hornchurch last weekend.

Worthing are also without a win against Bognor since 2015 – that coming in a pre-season friendly thanks to a brace from Omar Bugiel, overturning a 1-0 deficit into a 2-1 win.

When the sides met in the league last campaign, The Rocks took all three points after winning 2-0 at Woodside Road in December, before Jesse Starkey equalised for Worthing in the final few moments of the reverse fixture at Nyewood Lane in March, earning The Reds a 2-2 draw having being 2-0 after 20 minutes.
