FAWNL Division One South East Sun 24 March The Camping World Community Stadium

Donoghue’s squad had to share points in their last fixture against Norwich City which ended in a 1-1 draw

It was an enthralling encounter between two of the league’s top sides going toe-to-toe at The Nest, with both sides creating chances with the game potentially going either way. Norwich took the lead first through a goal via Ellie Smith in the 23rd minute. Worthing would have to wait until the 73rd minute when Emily Linscer tapped it home to level the game and score her first of the season.

After 90 minutes it saw the Rebels just 1 point off their opponents, however, Norwich have the chance to increase this due to having 2 games in hand on Donoghue’s side. With the Canaries kicking off at the same time of 2.00 PM, Worthing has the opportunity to gain an advantage over the Canaries who face fourth-place QPR.

Today’s match gives the Reds a chance to move into second place and continue to apply pressure to the top of the table as the season comes into its closing stages.
