Isthmian Premier Division Saturday 16th April, 2022

The fixture comes a week after the Reds were crowned division winners with a 2-0 victory over Bowers & Pitsea at the Len Salmon Stadium last Saturday:

Ollie Pearce hooked Worthing ahead three minutes before half time, before a sublime curling effort from Jasper Pattenden in the 83rd minute sealed promotion to the National League South for the 2022/23 campaign.

Meanwhile, 10th-placed Carshalton were unable to end a six-game winless streak, drawing 0-0 at home to Margate last weekend.

Recent meetings

The two sides met in the reverse fixture at the start of January this year:

Harry Ottoway’s brace put the Robins 2-0 up on the hour mark, before Callum Kealy halved Worthing’s deficit with two minutes of normal time remaining.

Despite an array of chances in injury time for the Reds, Carshalton hung on to claim all three points and inflict Worthing with only one of two league defeats so far this calendar year.
