The area’s three Macron Store Sussex County Football League Division Two clubs are set for action today (Saturday).

Bexhill United are on home soil for the eighth league game in a row as they welcome Steyning Town to The Polegrove hoping to build on last weekend’s win over Rustington.

Crosstown rivals Little Common will be eager to end a run of three successive league defeats when they travel to a third-placed Oakwood side which knocked them out of the Division Two Challenge Cup four weeks ago.

Westfield will be out to halt a seven-match sequence without a victory away to second-bottom Saltdean United. Westfield have conceded 10 goals in their last two outings, although both have been against top two opposition.

Hastings United are without a fixture today as a result of their early exit from the FA Trophy. The U’s will return to action on Tuesday night with a Parafix Sussex Senior Challenge Cup second round tie away to AFC Uckfield Town.
