Worthing manager Adam Hinshelwood promised changes at Woodside Road after his injury-hit squad lost 3-1 to Merstham on Tuesday, the West Sussex Gazette report.

Despite taking the lead through a James Crane penalty, three goals from an energised Moatsiders team knocked the Reds out of the Velocity Trophy and extended their losing streak to three.

This came despite kick-off being delayed by half an hour, with the visitors not even warming up before the match.

Hinshelwood said: “I’m disappointed, we just lost three games on the bounce. I thought Merstham were excellent so I might try that on Saturday – turning out without warming up.

“They worked hard enough. They wanted it more, they got to every first ball, every second ball, every third ball first.

“They were better in one-on-one situations, pressed us and worked us hard. We went 1-0 up luckily with the penalty but we didn’t create enough and it was boring to watch.”
