WORTHING Football Club conceded a last-minute equaliser for the fourth time this season on Tuesday evening at Corinthian Casuals in Ryman League Division 1 South.

Burgess Hill, Eastbourne Town, Whitehawk and now Corinthian Casuals have all hit last-minute levellers against Worthing this season.

Casuals took the lead through Steve Barilli on nine minutes but Worthing levelled with Ryan McBride’s left-foot volley from Jamie Brotherton’s free kick on 27 minutes.

Brotherton gave Rebels the lead after John Lansdale’s free kick fell to him four minutes later but Casuals, who had the wind behind them in the first half, equalised when Sayeed Sankoh’s strike flew into the top corner from 30 yards.

McBride pounced to give Worthing the lead, after Tom Lawley’s shot was spilled, with eight minutes left.

But, with Rebels sitting back, Casuals levelled when a cross from the right was headed home at the back post in the last minute by Steve Goddard.

The point moved Rebels up a place to fourth, ahead of Maidstone, who are the visitors to Woodside Road on Saturday.
