Hastings United’s footballers will be back in action tonight (Monday).

The U’s will contest their second Ryman Football League Division One South home game in the space of three days as Merstham visit The Pilot Field. Kick-off is 7.45pm.

Both teams lie in the third quarter of the early league table. United are 18th with eight points from seven games, while Merstham are 13th with nine from seven.

Although they would have been disappointed not to make it three successive wins in all competitions, Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Worthing did at least extend United’s run without defeat.

Merstham - who picked up four points against United last term including a draw at The Pilot Field - drew 2-2 away to last season’s play-off finalists Folkestone Invicta on Saturday.
