Worthing Football Club play their second successive cup match in four days with a short trip to Crawley to face Three Bridges in the Sussex Senior Cup second round at Jubilee Walk this evening.
The Mackerel Men go into the fixture having lost away to Leiston in the FA Trophy 4-2 on penalties, despite clawing themselves back from 2-0 down and 3-1 down to draw 4-4 in 90 minutes.
Meanwhile, hosts Three Bridges currently occupy 13th place in the Isthmian South East division winning two of their opening six games, and like Worthing, suffered an FA Trophy defeat at the hands of a Suffolk side on Saturday – losing 4-1 to Needham Market.
The two sides recently met in a pre-season match in December, battling out a goalless draw in a feisty affair at Jubilee Walk.
The pair also have recent previous history in the Sussex Senior Cup in the 2016-17 season when a goal from Lloyd Dawes settled the third round tie in Worthing’s favour.
