Horsham 0 Eastbourne Borough 1
Ten man Hornets suffer last-gasp heartbreak as Borough progress in cup
Horsham may well have put their FA Trophy disappointment behind them after crashing out to Bath City, but they face more National League South opposition in the form of Eastbourne Borough, who make the visit to Culver Road for a place in the Sussex Senior Cup Fourth Round.
Borough were arguably one of the teams Dom Di Paola would have hoped to of avoided when the draw was made last month, but with form on Horsham’s side, and having closely edged Bath City several weeks ago, Hornets fans will have no fear as they take on the 2016 winners.
The Sports, formerly Langley Sports, are presently twelve in the National South, however they spent much of last season battling relegation eventually finishing eighteenth.
Horsham last took on Borough in the Sussex Community Shield in August 2016, a game in which Tuesday evening’s visitors won comfortably at Culver Road 3-0. Prior to that, The Sports also knocked out Horsham back in November 2012 at the Second Round stage in the same competition.
The game is scheduled for a 7.15pm kick off at Culver Road.
