Hastings United 3 Horsham 3
Hornets denied win at Pilot Field thanks to late, late, equaliser
Dom Di Poala will hope his side can build upon their midweek success which saw The Hornets overcome Ryman Premier League side Burgess Hill Town to book their place in the Velocity Cup 2nd Round.
The win stopped a run of three consecutive defeats in all competitions for Horsham, yet it is the quest for Bostik League points that once again dominates the attention of Horsham fans, as we look to climb the table.and address what has been stuttering form in the league so far. The Hornets have registered two wins and a draw from our opening seven league fixtures, while our visitors, Cray Wanderers, come to Culver Road in 10th place, having gained six points more than ourselves, albeit, having played a game more.
The Wanderers will enter the game slightly in better shape, having had the week off while the Hornets were in action on Tuesday night, and on the back of a 3-1 win against Herne Bay that ended a run of three games without a victory.
The Hornets’ last meeting with The Wands finished up 2-2 on November of last year, when goals from Tom Lawley and Ollie Gill secured a hard fought point at Hayes Lane, and much like ourselves, the nomadic club will have aspirations to finish higher than their mid-table finish last season, having ended up in 11th position.
Saturday’s match has kindly been sponsored by Merc247. We once again, thank them for their tremendous support.
Kick off at Culver Road is at 3pm.
