WORTHING Football Club fought back from two goals down to win 3-2 away to Carshalton Athletic this afternoon.

The hosts took the lead in the Ryman League South Division match through Dan Summers’ penalty, after Corey Heath had fouled Ricky Korboa.

Korboa doubled Carshalton’s lead on 28 minutes, before Will Hendon got a goal back eight minutes into the second half after Brannon O’Neill’s free kick was parried.

Worthing keeper Rikki Banks pushed a Summers free kick on to a post, before Rebels equalised through Ben Pope’s overhead kick from Harvey Sparks’ cross on 76 minutes.

O’Neill then got the winner in the last minute when he beat the keeper to the ball to head home.
