WORTHING Football Club will welcome a near full-strength Brighton & Hove Albion squad to Woodside Road tonight (Wednesday).
Gus Poyet is expected to field a near full-strength side as they make their final pre-season preparations.
Rebels themselves will have a fairly depleted side with Tom Manton and Matt Piper ruled out through injury, while new signing Scott Tipper is a major doubt after the striker picked up a calf knock in training on Monday.
Paul Kennett is away on holiday, while Nick Sullivan is also unavailable. But Rebels boss Chris White is hoping to have a former Rebel, who has been training with the side this week, bank in the ranks with a view to signing this week.
White said: “It’s a great game for the club and it’s great to have it back as it’s very important financially.
“It’s a spectacle and I know the lads are all looking forward to it as am I.”
Kick-off is 7.45pm. For anyone that can’t make the match, we will have live and interactive coverage of the game here.
