The Reds return to Woodside Road having had a magnificent week away from home, with victories helping them to second in the table after three games:

Last Saturday, they defeated Welling United by four goals to two in an entertaining affair in south east London:

Callum Kealy put Worthing 1-0 up in the fifth minute, but that intial lead only lasted two minutes as Tyrique Hyde equalised for the hosts in the seventh.

Lewis White opened his account for the club in the 19th to help the reds regain the lead, before Joe Rye doubled the advantage seven minutes later.

Ade Azeez pulled another goal back for Welling to put them within a goal of Worthing at the interval, before Kealy scored his second and the visitors’ fourth in the 57th minute to ensure three.

Three days later on Tuesday, the Reds made the 228-mile round trip to Weymouth:

Although the home side hit the post twice in a first-half full of pressure asserted onto Worthing, they weathered the storm and went ahead through Joel Colbran five minutes before half time.

Twenty minutes from time, Ollie Pearce doubled the Reds’ advantage with his first goal of the season, before netting his second and the third of the evening 10 minutes later to seal the victory.

The result helped Worthing climb to second place after the opening three fixtures, with table-toppers Ebsfleet United the only side to have a 100% record thus far.

Meanwhile, visitors Chippenham have only played one fixture so far this campaign, which was a 3-0 home defeat to Ebsfleet a fortnight ago.

Their fixture at home to Chelmsford City last weekend was abandoned in the first half when Chippenham defender Pablo Martinez collapsed on the pitch before being stabilised and taken to hospital.

Everybody at Worthing Football Club was delighted to hear of Martinez’ recovery, and wishes him well.

Worn both shirts

Former Mackerel Man and current EFL League Two side Swindon Town midfielder Ricky Aguiar had a brief loan spell at the visitors last campaign, scoring seven goals in 13 appearances for the Bluebirds.
