The fixture is the Red’s second at Woodside in four days after they progressed to the third round of the Isuzu FA Trophy against Weymouth on Saturday:

It was the visitors which opened the scoring in the 10th minute through Keelan O’Connell, but two goals in as many minutes around the half-hour mark from Callum Kealy and Ollie Pearce saw Worthing go into the break with their noses in front.

Ollie Pearce scored his second and the Reds’ third in the 63rd minute, before Ibrahim Akanbi sealed the tie firmly in their favour despite a Terras’ consolation from the penalty spot from Brad Ash in the 88th minute, with the final score reading 4-2.

Meanwhile, hosts Tonbridge Angels exited the second round of the same competition at the weekend, losing 4-2 at home to Bracknell Town.
