The fixture comes five days after Worthing’s first loss of the new year – a 2-1 defeat away to Carshalton Athletic on Monday.
Worthing found themselves 2-0 down until the 88th minute when Callum Kealy pulled one back to set up a nervy final few moments for the hosts, but they kept the Reds’ pressure at bay to keep hold of all three points.
Meanwhile, East Thurrock United have had a disappointing league campaign so far, with only Leatherhead placed below them in the table.
They were also brushed aside by Wingate & Finchley on Monday by five goals to nil.
The two sides have already met this season back in September in an enthralling match at the Crucial Environmental Stadium:
The Rocks took the lead in the 15th minute through Johnny Ashman, but Ollie Pearce levelled the scoring 16 minutes later.
His response was met by a wonderstrike by Paulius Ditkevicius in the 41st minute, but a goal from former Red Alfie Young took Worthing into the break level at 2-2.
Aarran Racine’s header in the 54th minute gave Worthing the lead in the game for the first and last time, as East Thurrock failed to respond to give the Reds a 3-2 victory.
