The fixture comes three days after Worthing maintained their 13-point lead from their opponents with a 2-0 home victory over Margate at the Crucial Environmental Stadium on Saturday:

After a goalless first half, strikes from Ollie Pearce and Dajon Golding handed the Reds a 2-0 win against a 10-man Margate side to ensure Bishop’s Sortford’s 6-0 victory against Merstham gained them no ground.
