Worthing are facing key sessions on the training pitch ahead of their big TV date.

Rebels’ faltering play-off push will come under the spotlight on Sunday when they host Bath City live on TNT Sports.

A lot has changed at the Sussex Transport Community Stadium since the fixture was selected for broadcast.

Rebels have lost three in a row to slip down the play-off standings since the shock departure of boss Adam Hinshelwood to York City.

They remain on course for the promotion play-offs in Vanarama National League south but will want to halt their current tough run as soon as possible.

They followed two wasteful home defeats by going down 3-1 at Chippenham on Saturday.

The run will have sparked some concern after Worthing initially reacted to Hinshelwood’s exit in great style by winning 1-0 at second-placed Chelmsford.

Aarran Racine has taken interim charge with assistance from Darren Budd and Dean Hammond.

The Argus was told on Thursday that the post would be advertised “within the next 7-10 days”.

In the meantime, Racine prepares the squad for an historic occasion as the TV crew head to Woodside Road.

Speaking after the Chippenham game, he told Worthing FC TV: “When we look at the last three games we have played, we have changed formation halfway through the Taunton game.

“Since then, we have only really had a session to work on it.

“It will be important now to apply that and work on that in the next few training sessions.

“That has been something that has held us a back a little bit.

“We haven’t had time to work on certain parts of the shape we have implemented.

“I think it will be important this week to get those sessions in.”

Ollie Pearce converted a late penalty for Worthing but by then the game was out of reach.

Racine said: “I think this was the one game where we weren’t quite at it in terms of quality on the ball.

“In the last two games we have been really good, got into some really god positions and we have played some good stuff.

“We obviously haven’t had that bit of luck.

“Today we just lacked quality.”

Racine said individual errors cost Rebels dear in previous matches in terms of goals conceded.

But he added: “Set-plays is a big thing we have got to look at.”
