Worthing will bring in a new goalkeeper after losing Josh Jeffries to injury.

The youngster on loan from Southampton suffered a badly dislocated ankle in the 6-4 win over Dover.

Rocco Rees, who he had replaced in the starting XI, went on as sub.

Now boss Adam Hinshelwood is keen to bring in competition to Rees for the promotion run-in.

He is mindful of how Rebels ran with one senior keeper last season in Harrison Male and then lost him to injury at the time of the promotion play-offs and Senior Cup final.

Rebels look almost certain to be involved in the Vanarama National League south play-offs again this term.

Hinshelwood said: “I am probably looking for another goalkeeper.

“We lost Harrison last year but this year we are looking to have all bases covered.

“We have been putting a keeper on the bench.”

Teenager Will Tillman stepped in for the Senior Cup final last season and saved a penalty as Worthing beat Bognor in a shoot-out at the Amex.

Hinshelwood said: “Will has been injured but he has been back in training in the last week or so.”

Worthing go to Weymouth on Saturday while Eastbourne Borough host Chelmsford City.
