Rebels’ play-off hopes over

WORTHING Football Club’s Ryman League Division 1 South play-off hopes are over after a 3-1 defeat at Hythe Town on Saturday (April 21).

Dave Cook gave Hythe the lead on 16 minutes but Ryan McBride levelled for Rebels on the stroke of half-time.

Brendon Cass regained the home side’s lead two minutes into the second half and Jimmy Dryden made it 3-1 with seven minutes to go as seventh-placed Worthing suffered their fourth defeat from their last five league matches.

Godalming will clinch the final play-off place with a point in their final game, at home to Eastbourne Town, after a 3-1 win at Sittingbourne. Sixth-placed Maidstone lost 3-2 at Walton Casuals and are three points behind Godalming.
