Mo Janneh stars as Worthing defeats Cheshunt in southern Vanarama

Worthing secured their first home win since promotion.

But boss Adam Hinshelwood believes fans didn’t have too much to complain about while waiting.

The Mackerel Men went from a 2-0 deficit to a 3-2 home win over Cheshunt in the Vanarama National League South.

All goals came in a spectacular first half after ex-Worthing man Dayshon Golding shocked the home side in four minutes.

Worthing have won all four away games and drawn all three at home until Tuesday’s drama.

Hinshelwood was delighted with this three-point move.

But he said: “I think we’ve had some good performances here.

“We played really well against Dover but drew 1-1 and missed a penalty.

“If we hadn’t had the performances, it would have been a little more drastic today.

“But I’m glad we have it now and I think it should give us a little peace of mind at home now.”

Mo Janneh dragged Worthing back into contention with a fleeting header just after Cheshunt went two up.

Janneh also fell home the winner after a well-crafted short corner that caught Cheshunt.

Sammie McLeod equalized from close range, who shone in midfield.

Worthing played some exciting pass-and-move stuff in that interval between Cheshunt’s second goal and half-time, with Joel Colbran being a great outlet on the right.

They were less sharp in the second half but still should have added to their record.

As it turned out, the Livewire Janneh was a fitting match winner ahead of a gratifying 883 midweek turnout.

Hinshelwood said: “He’s been with us for about three years now. He was on our youth team and our education program.

“The good thing is that we still believe in what we do.

“We gave Joe Rye a chance when he was 18.

“We believe in giving young players a chance and we have a good youth line-up, some good young players.

“If they see a way there, then that gives them a bit of inspiration.

“Having Mo and Joe out there today shows that we are standing by our beliefs.”

Eastbourne Borough boss Danny Bloor was pleased with his side’s performance as they lost 1-0 at home to Welling.

Bloor said: “We played good football, especially in the second half. We had chances.”
