The game started off in fiery fashion, as the hosts picked up two yellows cards in the opening twenty minutes.

On the 30’ minute mark, Pearce made The Regents pay for giving away another cheap foul; as he fired home from a free-kick.

Worthing weren’t comfortable with just one goal, so set out for more in the second half. After a slow start to second half proceedings, the rebels sensed a chance on the hour mark, from a corner. Jesse Starkey picked out Aarran Racine at the back post, who’s header was followed up on by Pearce, who finished from close range – instinctively.

The game was wrapped up 15 minutes later, as Worthing’s continued pressure resulted in a third. Callum Kealy finished from inside the area, in front of the Worthing faithful who were in ecstasy.

Another vital three points for Worthing.
