Isthmian Premier Division Saturday 6th November, 2021

The home fixture comes off the back of a successful week on the road for the Reds:

Last Saturday, they progressed to the fourth round of the FA Trophy beating Chertsey Town 2-0, before extending their lead at the top of the table to five points with a 3-1 midweek win away to Wingate & Finchley.

Meanwhile, visitors Potters Bar have enjoyed a good start to their Isthmian league season, currently occupying 10th place five points outside the playoffs and, like Worthing, reached the fourth round of the FA Trophy on Saturday with a 2-0 win against Haringey Borough.

This afternoon’s fixture may also see return to Woodside of a recently-departed Mackerel Man:

Former defender Alfie Young racked up over 100 appearances in red before his move to Bar last month and has been part of clean-sheet-winning defences in his opening two fixtures for his new club.

Recent Meetings

The most recent meeting between the two sides came in the short-lived campaign of last season in Hertfordshire:

A goal from Ken Charles in the 28th minute put Potters Bar 1-0 up up half time, before a brace from Omar Koroma in the second half turned the game on its head to give Worthing all three points.

Team News

Marvin Armstrong still a doubt with a lingering Hamstring problem. Luca Cocoracchio and Joel Colbran are both back available for selection.
