The fixture comes four days after the Reds maintained their four-point lead at the top of the table with an impressive 3-1 win over promotion-rivals Folkestone Invicta on Tuesday evening at the Crucial Environmental Stadium:

Callum Kealy opened the scoring in the 29th minute, before Ollie Pearce doubled Worthing’s advantage a minute into the second half.

Kealy then scored his second and Worthing’s third eight minutes later to put the game out of Invicta’s reach despite a consolation in the 73rd minute from Alfie Paxman.

Meanwhile, hosts Corinthian-Casuals also enjoyed a midweek victory, progressing to the fourth round of the Velocity Trophy with a 4-2 win over Chertsey Town – whom Worthing have also beaten in a cup competition this season, winning 2-0 in the third qualifying round of the FA Trophy.

Recent meetings

The two sides have already played each other on three occasions this campaign, all in the month of September:

First, the clubs were drawn against one-another in the FA Cup first qualifying round, with the sides drawing 1-1 at Woodside Road after former Worthing frontman Mo Diallo cancelled out an opener from Casuals’ Benjamin Cheklit.

The tie was forced to a replay at King George’s Fields in which Casuals ran out 3-1 winners and progressed to the next round.

Three weeks later, an-injury time penalty from Diallo saw the Reds snatch all three points at the Crucial Environmental Stadium back in September in the reverse league fixture, avenging their cup exit.
