Worthing come into the fixture off the back of a disappointing defeat in midweek away at Hampton & Richmond Borough.
After a goalless first half where the Rebels created the better chances, the hosts started the brighter of the two teams in the second period and Rob Hall opened the scoring just three minutes in.
The Reds were denied a penalty before Ben Seymour doubled the Beavers’ lead from the spot himself.
Danny Cashman got a goal back for the Reds after Joan Luque laid him on a plate with great feet on the left flank.
But, Seymour bagged his second soon after and Alfy Whittingham added insult to injury in added time as the Rebels’ winless run stretched to five games in the National League South.
Adam Hinshelwood’s side have slipped to 11th in the league table but are just two points off St Albans City in the playoff places in what is a tightly contested National League South at this stage.
Bath City sit second in the league table and come into the fixture after a comfortable 3-0 win at home to West Country rivals Taunton Town.
The Romans are the league’s top scorers with 27 goals in 13 games and are five points ahead of Worthing in the league standings.
Striker Scott Wilson tops the league’s scoring charts with 10 goals already in the competition this term.
24/10 – Taunton Town (H) – Won 3-0
21/10 – Tonbridge Angels (A) – Lost 3-2
14/10 – Worthing (A) – Lost 2-0 (FA Cup)
7/10 – Braintree Town (A) – Drew 1-1
30/9 – Weymouth (A) – Won 1-2 (FA Cup)
23/9 – Dover Athletic (H) – Drew 2-2
The two sides met in the Emirates FA Cup Fourth Qualifying Round just a fortnight ago when Danny Cashman’s brace helped the Rebels to a 2-0 win over the Romans.
The only two meetings between the sides before that were during the league campaign last season. Ollie Starkey struck a late equaliser to earn a 2-2 draw at Twerton Park before the Romans came out on top as 3-2 winners at Woodside back in March.
Hinshelwood’s squad will be boosted by the return of defender Joe Felix who served the last of his three-match suspension in midweek.
Glen Rea made his debut for the club after signing on Tuesday and in in contention to make his full debut this weekend.
