Worthing go into the fixture having reached the Sussex Senior Cup final on in midweek with a 5-0 thumping of Three Bridges on Tuesday evening at Culver Road:

A first half strike from Jasper Pattenden was more than matched in the second period by goals from Davide Rodari, Callum Kealy and a brace from Reece Meekums to send the Reds to their second county cup final in six years.

Meanwhile, hosts Lewes’ promotion hopes stuttered with a goalless draw away to Corinthian-Casuals which left them two points adrift of the playoff places in sixth position.

Recent meetings

The sides have already met twice this season – first, battling out a nine-goal thriller at Woodside Road in front of a crowd of 1,600 in October:

Lewes went 2-0 up inside the first 15 minutes, before a brace from Ollie Pearce then a strike from Dajon Golding saw  the Reds go into the break ahead 3-2.

Japser Pattenden netted a minute after the restart as did Golding to get his second of the afternoon, but two goals for the Rooks set up a nervy final 15 minutes, but Worthing held on to their lead to get all three points.

The two sides then encountered one-another for a second time at the Crucial Environmental Stadium in mid-December in the third round of the Sussex Senior Cup:

A brace from Pattenden and a goal from Kealy saw the Rebels brush aside the Rooks 3-0 on the road to the final.
