There's good and bad news for the Rocks ahead of tonight's Sussex Senior Cup final.

Winger Mason Walsh has not - as the club had hoped - recovered sufficiently from a hip injury to face Burgess Hill in the Amex Stadium showpiece (7.45pm).

And midfielder Doug Tuck, who has been out with a similar injury, is fit enough only to be on the bench.

Better news comes in the forward line, where Jimmy Muitt - top scorer this season - and Brad Lethbridge are both fit to play.

The club's long injury list has robbed them of key players all season. That and the fact three squad members are cup-tied has opened the way for the likes of Ashton Leigh, Josh McCormick and Jimmy Wild to feature tonight.

Recent dual signing Emmett Dunn, a promising young midfield player, will be in the squad too.

Bognor boss Jack Pearce said: "I'm sure everyone who plays will give their all and I hope it's an enjoyable occasion for players and fans. Playing on a Premier League pitch will be something the players should remember for a long time."
