It was a shock loss for The Worthians as the visitors are bottom of the league, nine points adrift from safety.

Jake Wheeler put the visitors ahead, tapping home from close range.

Their lead was doubled in similar fashion to the first, good work on the right resulting in a cross into the box which Elliot Rushforth slotted home.

Highworth pulled it back to 2-2 with goals from Callum Parsons and Ryan King but the home side’s good work was undone through an own-goal following a corner.
