Preview: Worthing vs Enfield Town, 26/02/22

Worthing Football Club return to Pitching In Isthmian Premier League action with a home fixture against promotion-chasing rivals Enfield Town at the Crucial Environmental Stadium tomorrow afternoon.

The fixture comes four days after Worthing suffered exit from Velocity Cup on Tuesday, losing to Haywards Heath Town by three goals to two:

Despite leading 2-1  at half time with a first goal in Worthing-red for Crawley Town loanee Davide Rodari and a strike from Darren Budd, a brace from former Rebel Trevor McCreadie saw the home side progress to the fifth round at Hanbury Park.

The Reds’ postponed fixture with Bishop’s Stortford last weekend means their last league run-out came 11 days ago – a convincing 4-0 home victory against Kingstonian curtesy of a double from Callum Kealy and goals from Jasper Pattenden and Reece Meekums.

Meanwhile, visitors Enfield currently sit in third place, eight points behind Worthing having played a game more, and most recently were beaten 4-1 by north London rivals Wingate and Finchley on Tuesday evening.

Recent meetings

The two sides met in the reverse fixture back in mid-October:

Worthing opened the scoring in the 12th minute through Pattenden, but an equaliser on the stroke of half time from Enfield’s Percy Kiangebeni took the sides into the break level.

Meekums restored the Reds’ lead in the 57th minute, but Muhammadu Faal evened the scoreboard again for the hosts to share the spoils.

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!
