Manager Dave Carter is delighted his side have been awarded home advantage for the draw following their weekend victory against Hayes & Yeading.

But he is under no illusions to the difficulty of the task as the Sussex side knocked out Conference South hosts Chelmsford City in the last round.

'First and foremost we have got the home tie that we wanted,' said Carter.

'We know that it won't be easy against a team flying in the level above us.

'Our pitch at Dover Road, however, isn't the best at the moment and that might prove to be a good leveller.

'They might not fancy it, particularly as they are used to playing on a 3G pitch.

'We also have a fair degree of experience in our side and we are a team of battlers.

'Hopefully, we can get a big crowd in to get behind the lads and make it more intimidating for our opponents.'

Moneyfields reached this round with an excellent 1-0 win at Hayes & Yeading, courtesy of a Felipe Barcelos goal.

The Worthing tie is scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 6.

Bognor will travel to Haringey Borough if they see off Sudbury in their Cup replay tomorrow night.

Meanwhile, Fareham Town have a score to settle with Cowes Sports in tomorrow night's Wessex League Cup tie at Cams Alders (7.45pm).

The Yachtsmen beat the Reds in a league encounter earlier in the season.

'It would be nice to get one over on Cowes after the league defeat,' said Fareham manager Pete Stiles.

'At the time we felt it was a game we could and should have won.

'We are on a good run and there is a refuse to lose mentality in our dressing room.'

Petersfield Town host New Milton Town at Love Lane in Division One.

Tomorrow night Baffins Milton Rovers travel to Fawley in the League Cup.
