The fixture is Worthing’s second in as many days, having brushed aside Carshalton Athletic by five goals to nil on Saturday:

The Reds found themselves 3-0 up inside the first 25 minutes thanks to goals from Reece Meekums, Luke Robinson and Pat Webber, before goals in the second half from Ollie Pearce and Robinson rounded off a perfect day for the Reds in front of a bumper-crowd of 1,745.

Meanwhile, hosts Horsham also enjoyed a victorious easter Saturday with an impressive 3-0 win away to Corinthian Casuals at King George’s Fields.

Recent meetings

The two sides met in the reverse fixture on New Years Day earlier this year:

A hat-trick of second half penalties from Pearce helped earn Worthing a 3-1 victory, despite Eddie Dsane putting the Yellows a goal up at the interval.
