Adam Hinshelwood knows Worthing will have to be at their best if they are to progress in the FA Cup tomorrow - but insists his team are heading to Moneyfields for a third round qualifying tie full of confidence.

Worthing produced a stunning late comeback to run out winners in a seven-goal thriller at Sussex neighbours Lewes on Wednesday, now turning their attention to the FA Cup and Moneys - a team with just one league win from five matches so far this season.

The winners of the tie will pocket £15,000 and move to within a win of the first round proper.

Worthing boss Hinshelwood said: "It’s a big game. The rewards of advancing in the cup and the financial rewards for a club like ours is massive.

“It’s a tough place to go and they’re going to make it difficult for us. They’ll have incentives as well, with the finances and the chance to progress in a prestigious competition

“We have to be prepared to fight and scrap. It's going to be a real physical test, we’ll have to go and earn it.

"We'll go in to full of confidence on the back of a really good result but we're under no illusions how tough of a test this will be."

If the match is drawn, the replay will be at Woodside Road on Tuesday evening.
