  • Pearce (4')

The fixture comes just three days after the Reds faced another one of their playoff-chasing rivals in. the form of Braintree Town, at the Crucial Environmental Stadium on Saturday:

Zak Bradshaw put the visitors in front in the 14th minute, but Josh Chambers equalised for Worthing nine minutes before half time to take the sides into the break level.

With 20 minutes of the game remaining, Reece Meekums pounced on a defensive error and fired the Reds into a 2-1 lead, turning the game on its head.

Braintree had a golden opportunity to share the spoils in injury time when ran through one-on-one, but Harrison Male was on hand to produce a sublime save to ensure Worthing of all three points.

Meanwhile, hosts Farnborough saw their playoff hopes take a blow on Saturday, losing 2-0 away to Slough Town.


Worthing’s hard-fought weekend victory saw them maintain their seventh-place position, with two games-in-hand over St. Albans, Braintree and Eastbourne Borough in fifth, sixth and eighth respectively and go into their final four fixtures on 69 points.

Meanwhile, Farnborough’s loss to Slough saw the slip to 10th in the table, on 63 points having played the same amount of games as Worthing:

By Road: Leave the M3 at Junction 4 and take the A331 towards Farnborough. At the bottom of the slip road, you will reach a roundabout where you take the exit towards Farnborough. Continue along this road for a short distance, ignoring the first turn-off, but then take the next turn-off towards Farnborough (A325). At the top of the slip road, you will reach a roundabout where you take the right-hand exit towards Farnborough. Then straight across the next roundabout continuing towards Farnborough/Frimley.

At the next roundabout take the left-hand filter lane continuing on the A325 (from this point Farnborough FC is signposted). You will pass a Shell Garage on your left and at the next set of traffic lights turn right into Prospect Avenue then at the bottom of the Avenue take the 3rd exit at the roundabout into Cherrywood Road. Go straight across at the next roundabout and the entrance to the ground is a little further down on the right.

By Rail: Frimley Railway Station is the nearest to the ground, being around a 15-minute walk away. However, this station is on a local line and if you are coming from London Waterloo then you will end up instead at Farnborough Main station, which is around one and a half miles away from the ground (around a 25-minute walk away). It is probably best to jump in a taxi. If you do decide to walk then as you come out of the station turn right along Union Street. At the end of Union Street turn right into Prospect Road. This road leads into Cherrywood Road for the ground.
