East Grinstead Town 2 Horsham 2
Injury setback mars local derby
Having had a weekend off due to snow and frozen conditions last week, The Hornets will be keen to heat things up on the pitch when they make the short trip to Sussex rivals East Grinstead this Saturday.
Dom Di Paola’s side are still yet to break into the top ten this campaign, but will feel confident of achieving 50+ points and should results go their way they could well find themselves 10th by the evening. However the Horsham gaffer will be well aware of the task his side face, after Darren Boswell rescued a point for his side in the reverse fixture in December, breaking the hearts of the visiting Wasps supporters when he stepped off the bench to intervene and score a dramatic equaliser in injury time to secure a 1-1 draw.
Three months down the line, that point will be seen as a valuable asset to our hosts tomorrow, with The Wasps struggling throughout this season. They currently occupy 21st place, however they will have no realistic concerns of relegation due to the woeful form of basement side Shoreham whom they have an 11 point lead over.
East Grinstead have informed us that due to rain forecast, a decision will be taken early on Saturday morning if a pitch inspection will be required. We will inform supporters of any decision as early as possible.
