Aarran Racine’s Rebels dug deep to earn all three points at promotion rivals Chelmsford City on Monday night, thanks to an 87th-minute wonder strike by Jack Wadham.

It was an entertaining encounter between two good sides going toe-to-toe at Melbourne Stadium, with both sides creating so many chances, that on another night, the scoreline could have been much different.

The deciding moment came late on and it was pure inspiration from the on-loan Bournemouth midfielder who struck the sweetest volley that arrowed into the top left corner to mark a first win for Aarran Racine & co in their first outing from the dugout.

The result meant that Worthing closed the gap on the Clarets to two points having played a game less. With Chelmsford kicking off at a later time of 7.30pm on Saturday, Worthing have the opportunity to gain an advantage over their promotion rivals.

Off the pitch this week, striker Ollie Pearce was recognised for his fine form having been named as the National League South’s Player of the Month for February. Pearce was also selected in the England C squad this week ahead of the Non-League Lions’ clash against Wales C on Tuesday, 19th March.


The Opposition

The Peacocks are going through an incredibly difficult period on and off the pitch having had several home games postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Their last victory came on 9th December when they beat Farnborough 4-0 at home. The Peacocks have gained four points from their last six matches as they battle against the drop this season.

2/3 – Truro City (A) – Lost 2-0
24/2 – Dartford (A) – Drew 1-1
10/2 – St Albans City (A) – Lost 6-0
6/2 – Truro City (H) – Drew 0-0
3/2 – Welling United (A) – Drew 0-0
27/1 – Aveley (H) – Drew 2-2

Team News

Nicky Wheeler returned to training this week and could be available for some minutes off the bench this weekend. Tommy Willard has faced a minor setback in his recovery from a hamstring injury, meaning that his return to the training pitch will likely start training next week. While Finlay Chadwick is on the verge of a return having been assessed before training on Thursday night.

Reuben Livesey-Austin and Michael Klass are both sidelined for one more game through suspension. Last week’s postponement at Dartford meant that the pair had to wait a little longer before being available for selection.
