WORTHING FC won for the third successive match on Saturday (February 5) when they beat high-flying Met Police 3-0 in Ryman League Division 1 South.

Rebels led 2-0 at half-time with goals from Tom Lawley and Terry Dodd, by which stage Police had been reduced to 10 men when Eddie Smith received a straight red card for a foul on Steve Metcalf.

George Gaskin added a third for Worthing late on and Rebels boss Chris White said: “We were excellent and played really good football.

“We’ve got two home games coming up now and will look to take maximum points.”

The first home match is against Chatham on Tuesday (February 8).

Dodd is doubtful after dislocating an elbow in Saturday’s match, while keeper Tony Di Bernardo is unavailable as he is on a three-day trial with League Two Burton Albion.

Tom Godfrey, on loan from Brighton & Hove Albion, will deputise in goal for Worthing, who have Tony Timms and Callum Saunders back available.

White hopes Lawley (ankle), Mike Huckett (knee) and Luke Gedling (ankle) will all be fit.

He said: “It’s just a case of patching everyone up and going again.

“Terry went to hospital on Saturday night after dislocating his elbow but he’s desperate to play on Tuesday.

“He’s a tough nut but we’ve got to be sensible about it.”
