Horsham 4 Littlehampton 2
Hornets seal win to progress in Sussex Senior Cup
The Hornets look to make their way into the forth round of the Sussex Senior Cup, as they take on Littlehampton Town at Culver Road, looking to bounce back from their frustrating 0-1 loss at Phoenix Sports on the weekend, that ended a run of four league matches without defeat.
The Marigolds are enduring a torrid season, rooted to the foot of the Sussex Combination Premier Division, three seasons on from having won the Championship during the 2014/15 season. A 4-1 win at home against Crawley Down Gatwick in mid-November appeared to ease their troubles, however it proved short lived, as subsequent defeats to Horsham YMCA and AFC Uckfield have seen them drop to the bottom of the table.
The two sides last met each other in pre-season, with The Hornets running out comfortably as 0-3 winners in July, while Horsham won the last two competitive fixtures against our Tuesday night challengers, during our season long stay in the SCPD during 2015/16.
We kick off at the slightly earlier time of 7.15pm.
The club would like to thank Monksgate Business Services for their sponsorship of tonight’s match.
