Worthing followed up on last weekend’s victory against now champions Yeovil Town with a midweek triumph over strugglers Dartford.

Aarran Racine’s side had to come back from a half-time deficit after the Darts’ skipper Luke Coulson scored from the spot midway through the first half.

Needing a resurgence, the second half couldn’t have started much better when Brad Dolaghan’s cross-come-shot found the back of the net as it sailed over Rhys Byrne and in at the far post.

The Rebels got themselves in front on 70 minutes when Kane Wills latched onto the ball following a mistake from Darts defender Joash Nembhart. Wills made no mistake himself as he dispatched it past Byrne to secure all three points for his side.

Worthing are now 4th in the league standings with two games to go after Braintree dropped points at home to Taunton in midweek.


The Opposition

St Albans remain in the hunt for the Play-Offs despite their recent downturn in form. The Saints come into the fixture five points off the Play-Off positions but have a game in hand over Farnborough in 7th.

The Saints lost at home to Chippenham last time out which extended their winless run to five matches which has left them outside of the Play-Offs with three to play.

06/04 – Chippenham Town (H) – Lost 0-1
01/04 – Slough Town (A) – Drew 2-2
29/03 – Braintree Town (H) – Lost 0-1
23/03 – Aveley (A) – Lost 2-1
16/03 – Truro City (H) – Lost 1-2
12/03 – Weston-super-Mare (A) – Won 0-2


Familiar Faces

Saturday’s match will see the return of two of last season’s squad members, Dan Bowry and Ibby Akanbi.

Akanbi joined the Rebels in October last year and went on to make 29 league appearances for the club, scoring 7 goals.

Bowry signed in the summer of 2022 from Kings Lynn Town and went on to make 24 appearances in total last season. His only goal for the club came in the 2-2 draw with Slough Town at Woodside Road in October last year.

Rebels winger Dylan Fage will face his former club on Saturday. Fage joined the Rebels from the Saints in January and has made 11 appearances so far, scoring two goals including one on his debut against Torquay United.


Previous Meetings

The last two encounters between the sides have both been great matches for the neutrals, with 17 goals scored across the two games. Most recently it was a 4-4 draw at the Sussex Transport Community Stadium in the reverse fixture this season. Before that, the Rebels were beaten 5-4 in another dramatic encounter at Woodside Road.

Earlier on in last season’s campaign, the Rebels secured all three points on their travels, edging past the Saints as 1-0 winners.

Worthing’s largest winning margin in this fixture is three, when the Saints were defeated 6-3 at Woodside Road on 9th October 1982 in Division 1 of the Isthmian League; The Rebels ended the season as champions and St Albans finished bottom.


Team News

Jack Wadham, who was a notable absentee for the Rebels’ recent trips to Yeovil and Dartford, returned to training on Thursday night and should be available for selection for the trip to Clarence Park.

Aarran Racine confirmed that Nicky Wheeler (ankle) is still likely another week away from a possible return, while Reuben Livesey Austin picked up a knock in training that makes him a doubt for the visit to St Albans.
