The Reds moved to second place on Tuesday with a 4-3 win over fellow high-flyers Kingstonian in an entertaining match in Surrey:
A first half hat-trick from Ollie Pearce and a 75th minute winner from Jesse Starkey saw off a stubborn K’s side to put themselves a point behind Enfield with a game-in-hand.
Meanwhile, hosts Enfield go into the match having picked up 22 points from a possible 30 so far this campaign, and also enjoyed a win on Tuesday evening beating local rivals Wingate and Finchley 2-1 to maintain top spot.
The last meeting between the two sides came in December 2019 during the voided campaign of 2019-20:
Goals from Reece Meekums and Ollie Pearce put Worthing 2-0 up inside the first ten minutes, before Mohammadou Faal netted a brace to put Enfield back on level terms.
With the match looking likely to end a stalemate, Joel Colbran restored the Reds’ lead five minutes from time to give Worthing all three points on a cold evening at the Crucial Environmental Stadium.
The return fixture was due to be played on 14th March 2020 – the weekend of the national postponement of elite sports in spite of the COVID outbreak and was subsequently postponed.
Enfield Town vs Worthing, 16/10/21, 3pm Kick-off, Queen Elizabeth II Stadium Donkey Lane, Enfield, EN1 3PL.
A public car park is situated just off Donkey Lane, next to Enfield Playing Fields, adjacent to the to the QEII Stadium. The entrance to the car park is at the end of the initial straight section of Donkey Lane, just past the houses on the left as you approach the stadium. Before the road bears right (you will be able to see 3G Facilities straight ahead) you need to enter the car park just beyond a speed hump. Please do not park on Donkey Lane itself, as there is limited parking for residents and doing so also causes delays and difficulties to other road users.
Enfield Town, Brimsdown (then 191 bus) and Southbury are the three nearest train stations to the stadium. Both Enfield and Brimsdown have step free access.
