Former Mackerel Man Mo Diallo put the home side ahead in the 31st minute, before half-time substitute Dajon Golding levelled the scoring two minute into the second period.

The first opportunity came in the 10th minute when When Jasper Pattenden counter attacked from a loose Corinthians pass before driving into the area and shooting, but his effort was straight at Daniel Bracken.

Six minutes later, Luke Robinson crossed into the ball of Callum Kealy and couldn’t quite find his path, but the ball fell to Ollie Pearce who turned and struck with his weaker foot but placed his effort narrowly wide.

In the 31st minute, former Worthing frontman Mo Diallo broke through on goal picking up a loose ball, and fired past Harrison Male to put the home side 1-0 up at the break.

The hosts’ lead would only last two until two minutes into the second half however, as substitutes Marvin Armstrong and Dajon Golding combined with Kealy.

Golding then broke into the area and brushed the ball past Bracken to put the Reds back on level terms.

Casuals almost re-gained their lead five minutes later, when Diallo cut the ball back to Bobby Mills, who rattled the bar from a shot on the edge of the area.

Adam Hinshelwood’s half-time subs continued to threaten on the break, with Armstrong laying to Golding in the 62nd minute before the latter layed the ball to Pearce overlapping, but his shot was aimed straight at Bracken.

11 minutes later, Cameron Tutt broke down the wing and pulled the ball back to Golding, who swung his shot producing another fine save from Bracken.

Five minutes from time, Tutt crossed into Colbran at the back post, but he aimed his shot straight at Bracken, before Kealy held the ball up well but after turning blazed an effort over the bar.

Few chances followed with the game ending in a stalemate, with Worthing next playing at the same venue on Wednesday night against Kingstonian in the third round of the Velocity Trophy.
