Worthing have been without the services of captain and midfielder Darren Budd for the majority of the last three after months after he suffered a fractured fibula, but will be back available to Hinshelwood after training on Tuesday.

“Buddy will come back into contention after getting a few minutes, whether he’ll be ready to start I don’t know but it’s just good news to have him back as he’s massive to the boys.”

Aside from Budd, Hinsh has a healthy looking squad to choose from going into the test at The Maurice Rebak Stadium.

“Ollie Pearce will probably be out after picking up a knock on Tuesday, Danny Barker probably still isn’t quite ready, but apart from that we aren’t looking too bad.”

Their opponents haven’t had the best of starts to the season so far, currently sitting fourth from bottom, but Hinsh insists his side cannot be complacent going into the fixture, after The Blues’ recent scores.

“They’ve had a couple of good results, they beat Lewes last week and lost narrowly to Cray who are a very good side, so they might be starting to turn their fortunes round and it could be a bad time to play them.

“We played very poorly last weekend so we need to focus on ourselves beforehand and work a lot harder than we did last week.”

Last season’s meetings between the two sides saw The Mackerels pick up two 2-1 wins.
