The fixture comes as Worthing remained top of the league over the weekend, but fell to only their third league defeat with a 2-1 loss to Cheshunt on Saturday:

Ollie Pearce opened the scoring for Worthing on 10 minutes, but the visitors struck back with a brace from striker Roman Liburd in the first half to take all three points, becoming only the second side to achieve that so far this campaign.

Meanwhile, visitors Seaford Town are currently placed sixth in the second tier of the Southern Combination Football League, beating Midhurst & Easebourne away 2-1 on Saturday.

They thumped league-above Loxwood by six goals to one in the previous round to set up the tie this evening.
