Hampton & Richmond

Worthing ended their four-game winless run in emphatic style on Good Friday with a 5-1 win over struggling Havant & Waterlooville.

Ollie Pearce bagged the opener despite the Rebels not being at their best in the first half and they were pegged back just before halftime at 1-1 when Scott Willson levelled things up.

Tommy Willard was introduced at the break and wasted no time in impacting the contest when he fired in to regain the lead on 52 minutes, and from there, Worthing went from strength to strength.

Pearce doubled his tally from the spot on 70 minutes and Danny Cashman scored his third in two games less than ten minutes later, before Finlay Chadwick capped off a fine second half with a precise chip over the keeper for 5-1.

The result meant that Worthing climbed above their Easter Monday opponents to fifth as the Beavers were held at home. In the fight for the advantageous 2nd and 3rd spots, the Rebels are currently two points behind Braintree Town in third.


The Opposition

The Beavers have been in the play-off places for virtually the whole season, largely thanks to their incredible run between October and January when the side went on a 17-match unbeaten run across all competitions.

Recently, the Beavers have hit somewhat of a rough patch, without a win in three. However, before that, they put another string of results together, a seven-match unbeaten streak and winning five of those matches.

Entering April, the Beavers have six matches remaining and sit 6th in the league table, one position behind Worthing who have one extra point having played an extra game.

Previous Meetings

The sides were paired against each other in the Boxing Day/New Year’s Day double-header last term.

The Rebels picked up all three points in a dramatic seven-goal thriller at Woodside on Boxing Day, with Ollie Pearce scoring the winner at the death.

It wasn’t such an exciting affair at the Beveree seven days later, with the sides playing out a goalless draw.

In the reverse fixture this season, the Beavers came out on top at the Beveree as 4-1 winners, with Danny Cashman scoring the only Worthing goal back in October.


Worn Both Shirts

Liam Vincent scored a hattrick for the Beavers in the Boxing Day classic last season before linking up with the Rebels on loan from mid-January last term until the end of the season.

Vincent returned for a short spell on loan in West Sussex earlier this season and made five appearances.


Team News

Both Joel Colbran and Jack Wadham were left out of the squad on Good Friday as a precaution with the pair both carrying slight knocks. Racine expects to have both players available for the Easter Monday clash with Hampton & Richmond.

Nicky Wheeler is a doubt for the contest having been forced off on Friday after rolling his ankle.
