Horsham 3 East Grinstead 1
Wasps grounded, as Hornets fly
Having won our last two league fixtures, Horsham will aim to make it nine points from nine, as The Hornets make a gruelling midweek trek to Kent to take on eleventh placed Herne Bay.
The Bay, fought back twice on Saturday to secure a 2-2 draw at home to East Grinstead, making it five points from their last four fixtures, however they take on an in-form Horsham side, who have just lost once in eight Bostik League South fixtures.
This will be the second occasion the two sides have locked horns this season, with Hornets looking to avenge their 2-5 loss at Culver Road in the Second Qualifying Round of the FA Cup. Horsham will take heart that their last two visits to Kent have resulted in wins, with Dom Di Paola’s side securing victories away at Faversham Town and Greenwich Borough. Ironically, it was a victory away at Winches Field last season that stopped a miserable run where Horsham had failed to win in the previous six seasons. A Lewis Hyde bullet header in the fifty-ninth minute securing all three points on a foggy day in mid-December 2016.
The Hornets kick off at 7.45pm.
