Isthmian Premier Division Saturday 4th December, 2021

The match is Worthing’s first in the league for two weeks following a string of cup ties which included their progression to the Sussex Senior Cup third round with a 6-2 win against Seaford Town, before a 2-0 home defeat to Dorking Wanderers on Saturday saw them exit the FA Trophy in the second round.

In their last league fixture a fortnight ago, Ollie Pearce’s 11th minute goal was cancelled out by a brace from Roman Liburd to hand Worthing only their third league loss of the campaign.

Meanwhile, visitors Cray Wanderers have had a poor start to their season, sitting 20th in the division without a league win since the start of October.

However, they did progress to the third round of the FA Trophy last Saturday, defeating National League South side Ebbsfleet United on penalties after a 2-2 draw.

Recent meetings

The sides have already met once this season back in August, with Worthing running out 2-1 winners in Bromley:

Tom Chalaye opened the scoring in the 15th minute, but a strike from Ejiro Okosieme in the 35th minute saw the sides go into the break level.

Dajon Golding’s strike in the 73rd minute gave Worthing all three points.
