The fixture succeeds a bitter-sweet bank-holiday weekend for the Reds which saw them win 2-1 away to Cray Wanderers on Saturday, followed by a 2-0 defeat on Monday by rivals Bognor Regis Town in front of 2,101 spectators.

Meanwhile, visitors Corinthian-Casuals have had a disappointing start to their campaign yet to pick up a victory so far, and most recently lost 1-0 to their fellow ground occupants Kingstonian on Monday.

Last season, the Mackerels bowed out at the same stage of the competition, losing on penalties to league-below East Grinstead after an entertaining 3-3 draw.

A shootout also denied Casuals a place in the third round, losing 3-1 on spot-kicks after a 2-2 draw with National League South side Dulwich Hamlet.

Recent Meetings

The two sides last met back in November 2019, with first-half goals from Ricky Aguiar and Reece Meekums helping Worthing to a 2-0 home win in the Isthmian Premier League.
