The Mackerels ran out victors in every game they played throughout December, most recently beating fellow promotion-chasers Horsham 3-0 at Woodside Road on Boxing Day thanks to an opener from Alex Parsons followed by a brace from Ollie Pearce.

Hosts Bognor also enjoyed a successful December, winning three games out of four and annihilating Cray Wanderers 7-2, but have not played a game since their fixture on the 14th due to their recent two matches against Folkestone and Lewes having been postponed.

Worthing eased to a 3-0 victory when the sides met in August, curtesy of Pearce who struck twice against his former club, after a howler from Rocks keeper Charlie Searle gifted Marvin Armstrong a goal in the first half.

A win for The Reds could lift them top of the BetVictor Premier League, provided Folkestone Invicta drop points away to Merstham.
