Burgess Hill Town will field a full strength side in tonight's Sussex Senior Cup third round visit to SCFL Premier side Pagham as boss Simon Wormull believes his players haven't earned the right to have a rest.

The Hillians travel to Nyetimber Lane having lost three consecutive Bostik Premier League games and have conceded nine in their past four in all competitions.

Wormull will play the majority of the players that took part in Saturday's 3-2 away defeat to Brightlingsea Regent as they look to progress to the next round of the competition.

He said: "We're going full strength for Pagham. After Saturday I think it's important we go full strength although we do have a couple of injuries.

"I think you earn your time off or rest and we didn't have that Saturday so we will all be out there working hard to get ourselves in the quarter-finals of the Sussex Senior Cup."

Burgess Hill's opponents sit in fourth-place in the SCFL Premier Division, having taken 31 points from 16 games. Saturday saw the Lions crash out of the FA Vase in the third round as they were thumped 6-2 away from home by Wessex Premier Division side Sholing.

Wormull will use this match up to iron out the flaws that have cost his team in recent weeks as he hopes to 'put a few things right'.

He added: "They're doing well and they're a strong side. I know some of the players there but it'll be a good opportunity to come away from the league again and work on a few thing and put a few things right.

"We'll identify what has gone wrong in the last couple of games and hopefully we can pick up a win and that will take us into Saturday against Carshalton and then we will see where we go from there."

Kick-off tonight is at 7:45pm.
