U’s tackle vital Sussex derby

Hastings United’s trip to Lewes headlines a bumper bank holiday Monday of local football action.

Monday, 9th April 2012, 7:00 am

The U’s will be desperate for some sort of result at The Dripping Pan in their quest for Ryman League Premier Division survival. Kick-off is 3pm.

Saturday’s results have left United in the final safe spot of fifth-from-bottom and only three points above the drop zone with four games remaining.

And while United take on a sixth-placed Lewes side bidding to sneak into the play-offs, Leatherhead - the team immediately below them - are at home to bottom-of-the-table and already relegated Horsham.

Harrow Borough - the other side fighting for survival - aren’t in action until Wednesday night when they host FA Trophy semi-finalists Wealdstone.

Elsewhere today, Rye United will seek to keep their Sussex County League Division One title hopes alive with three points in a local derby at home to Sidley United. Kick-off is 11am.

Division Two strugglers Little Common will go in search of a second victory in less than 48 hours as they welcome in-form cross-town rivals Bexhill United to the Recreation Ground. Kick-off is also 11am.

Two more sides eager to pull away from the foot of Division Two, Westfield and Seaford Town, will go head-to-head at The Parish Field. Kick-off in that one is 3pm.
