Danny Cashman scored twice to earn Worthing a point on their big TV date.

But they had to settle for a 2-2 draw at home to Bath City before the TNT Sports cameras.

Cashman twice cancelled out goals conceded to corners and went close to a late winner when his glancing header bounced wide in stoppage time.

Interim Rebels boss Aarran Racine was not happy with the draw and said: “It’s the story of our life at the moment. Set-plays are killing us.

“We are not strong enough, not aggressive enough and the last three games have been the same thing.

“It’s something we are trying to address but, at the same time, personnel-wise we are trying to go forward with a team who play football rather than be brutes and defend on the edge of our box and set-plays.

“It’s catch 22, if you have a player who can do both, they are probably not at this level, they are probably playing higher.”

Regulars at the Sussex Transport Community Stadium will know all about Worthing’s strengths and weaknesses.

But this entertaining encounter before a crowd of 2,119 offered TV viewers all the evidence they needed of the team’s quality and creativity with the ball - and that fragility against set-pieces.

Cashman’s superb curler, cleverly guided around a defender, brought them level at half-time and that was the least they deserved from the opening period.

They had trailed for seven minutes.

Scott Wilson forced the ball home on the half-hour from a corner after Rocco Rees had initially made a good save.

The hosts wobbled again at the back as Duncan Idehen hooked a shot over after a long throw was allowed to bounce twice in the danger area.

But some of their work on the ball was a joy to watch, be it for those watching in person or on screen.

Ollie Pearce hit the bar with a free-kick, the dangerous Joe Felix flashed a shot across goal and Cashman was denied by a good save.

Cashman saw his low effort touched wide after the break but Worthing had generally lost their sparkle and went behind again when Jordan Dyer powered home a header from a 65th-minute corner.

Bath then sat back and looked comfortable until Cashman crashed a left-foot effort into the top corner to level 14 minutes later.
