After a hectic week off the field, the Rebels return to action tomorrow (Saturday, 3rd March) and will be looking to get off to a winning start under new interim boss, Aarran Racine.

Racine takes over from Adam Hinshelwood who left the club this week after being offered an opportunity to take the helm at York City in the National League, thus ending a 7-year stint in his second spell as Worthing manager.

Watch Adam’s Farewell Interview:

Racine is joined by Darren Budd and Dean Hammond as part of his coaching staff, and the trio had their first training session with the players on Thursday night.

The Rebels sit third in the table ahead of their trip to Kent and the side will be looking to get back to winning ways after two defeats in a row have helped Chelmsford to leapfrog them in the league table.


The Opposition

Dartford will also have a new man in the dugout for this fixture, having just appointed Adrian Pennock as their new manager.

Pennock’s challenge this season will be to guide the Darts to safety in the National League South, with the side currently sat just four points above the drop-zone in 18th.

The Darts have had a tough run of late and have won just once in their last seven outings, having lost to play-off hopefuls Aveley in midweek.

27/2 – Aveley (H) – Lost 1-2
24/2 – Taunton Town (H) – Drew 1-1
20/2 – Slough Town (A) – Lost 3-2
17/2 – Dover Athletic (A) – Won 1-2
13/2 – Chippenham Town (H) – Lost 0-1
10/2 – Bath City (A) – Lost 1-0


Previous Meetings

When the sides met earlier this season, the Darts were 3-4 winners in a dramatic encounter at the Sussex Transport Community Stadium.

Before that, the Rebels did the double over the Darts in the league last season, winning 1-2 at Princes Park before completing a comfortable 3-0 victory at home.

In total, Worthing and Dartford have faced each other eight times, with Worthing winning three, drawing once and losing four.


Team News

Racine confirmed that Nicky Wheeler, Finlay Chadwick and Tommy Willard are all expected to return to training next week, but none of the trio will be available for selection at the two away matches against Dartford and Chelmsford.

Michael Klass picked up his tenth yellow card of the season against Braintree and will serve the first of a two-match suspension this weekend, joining Reuben Livesey-Austin on the suspended list.
