WORTHING Football Club boss Adam Hinshelwood is hoping his side can continue their excellent recent form.

Rebels have won five successive games in all competitions and have lost just once in their last 11 matches - which has seen them climb into the Ryman League South Division play-off places.

Hinshelwood was frustrated that his side’s match at Chipstead on Tuesday was postponed and said:“It was disappointing for everyone when we learned that the game was off.

“They left the pitch inspection until 4.30pm to try to give it as much time as possible but it was not quite good enough.

“When you are on a run like ourselves, you just want to play every single week.

“The squad have been absolutely fantastic and our run of form over the past couple of months has been exceptional.

“This gives us a little break and I’m sure everyone will be raring to go once again on Saturday.”

Worthing travel to Herne Bay on Saturday and Hinshelwood said: “Herne Bay is never an easy place to go and that will be no different this weekend.

“They have a good side and will be out to try to end our winning run.

“We know that we will have to be at our best if we are to take anything from the game.”

Rebels then entertain Burgess Hill in the Sussex Senior Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday. The Hillians inflicted Worthing’s only defeat in their last 11 games, 5-1 at Woodside Road last month.

Hinshelwood said: “No team enjoys losing and that 5-1 loss against Burgess Hill hurt the squad.

“We learned a lot from that defeat and I think the players will be better off this time around.

“They are going really well and are unbeaten in the league this year but we know we are capable of causing an upset.

“With the run that we are currently on and a semi-final spot in the competition up for grabs, I am sure everyone will be wanting to win.”
