Preview: Worthing vs Folkestone Invicta, 25/01/22

Worthing Football Club continue their Pitching In Isthmian Premier League season with a rescheduled home match against promotion-rivals Folkestone Invicta tomorrow evening at the Crucial Environmental Stadium.

The fixture comes four days after Worthing were denied victory late on by Hornchurch at Woodside Road on Saturday:

Jasper Pattenden curled the Reds ahead in the 57th minute, and looked likely to have earnt Worthing all three points until a Tom Wraight strike in injury time shared the spoils.

Meanwhile, visitors Folkestone beat Wingate & Finchley by a goal to nil on Saturday to keep their promotion hopes ticking over, currently occupying the final playoff position in fifth.

Recent meetings

The two sides met in the first fixture of the season back in August at the Buildkent Stadium:

Ollie Pearce scored his first of many goals of the campaign to put Worthing 1-0 up in the 51st minute, but a brace from Invicta’s Ian Draycott turned the game on its head.

David Smith then added a third for Folkestone in the 71st minute to give the hosts all three points on the opening day.

Supporter information

Please note parking at Worthing High School is no longer available, however the limited spaces at the Queen Street car park remain in use.

In an attempt to speed up the queues at the turnstiles, there will be a dedicated queue for Season Ticket Holders & prepaid tickets from 2pm on Saturdays (or 7pm on Tuesdays) for every home game, so for anyone who cannot make it to the ground early, they can avoid the cash and card payment queues and get into the stadium more quickly.

So if that’s you, head towards the left of the three original turnstiles on the east side of the ground and we will let you in through the side gate.

We’d still advise arriving in good time!
