Worthing continued their fantastic run of form at the weekend as they dug deep to win 4-1 away at Weymouth, finishing the game with nine men following red cards for Reuben Livesey-Austin and Joel Colbran.

Danny Cashman put the Rebels in front in the opening ten minutes, but the Reds were forced to play 75 minutes with 10 men following Livesey-Austin’s dismissal on 15 minutes.

After weathering a few Weymouth storms, Worthing eventually were rewarded for their hard graft. Tommy Willard earned a penalty at the other end which Ollie Pearce dispatched down the middle for his 30th league goal of the season and the ninth consecutive match he had scored in.

After dealing with early pressure in the second half, Worthing found the back of the net once more. Pearce capitalised on a mistake at the back and finished exquisitely by lobbing stranded goalkeeper Gerard Benfield for Worthing’s third.

Machali Linton got a goal back for the Terras from point-blank range but it proved to be just a consolation, with Pearce netting at the other end again before the conclusion to complete his hat trick and a remarkable Rebels victory.

In the last minute of added time, Colbran picked up a second yellow card which rules him out for Worthing’s trip to Dartford on Saturday, 2nd March.

As for the league table, Worthing remain five points ahead of third-placed Chelmsford City and ten points behind league leaders Yeovil Town.


The Opposition

Despite their lowly league position, the Wings have been on a good run as of late as they battle for survival this season.
