Worthing were beaten in the First Round of the Emirates FA Cup last time out by National League North side Alfreton Town.
It was an intriguing contest at Impact Arena that saw two contrasting styles of football go head-to-head.
Nathan Newell struck a stunning effort into the top left corner for the hosts on 73 minutes before Kennedy Digie found the back of the net with a header in the late stages to seal a 2-0 win for the home side.
Last time out in the league, Adam Hinshelwood’s side ran out 2-0 winners away at high-flying Bath City. A result which moved them to within a point of the play-off places.
The Rebels now sit 9th in the league table, with games in hand over most of the teams placed above them, as they prepare for the visit of the Hawks.
Havant & Waterlooville have had a difficult start to the 2023/24 season, winning just once so far this seaon. Though, that win did come in a seven-goal thriller against league-leaders Yeovil Town.
The Hawks made a manegerial change in September, parting company with Jamie Collins and replacing him with former Welling United, Dartford and Gloucester City boss, Steve King.
