Managerless Pagham’s search for a first league win in two and half months takes them on the road to Little Common tomorrow (3pm).
Lions are currently second bottom and without a boss after Bob Paine departed for personal reasons.
The young side will be looking to build on a number of promising performances tomorrow against a Common side who have won just twice in eight games in all competitions.
With the game held at The Oval in Eastbourne, it will be Pagham’s second trip to the ground in the last month following a 4-0 loss to Eastbourne United in the league in October.
Lions will look to do better than their Sussex Senior Cup defeat to Isthmian South East side Whitehawk in midweek when they were hammered 4-0.
Some dreadful defending and some poor finishing cost the Lions dear after having their fair share of possession over the 90 minutes.
Joe Clarke had the first Pagham shot of the game in the 13th minute but it was straight at the keeper and Tom Chalaye had a speculative long-shot drift wide, before Whitehawk starting to exert their superiority.
Hawks scored twice before the break, Conor Tighe converting a penalty before Duane Ofori-Acheampong blasted an excellent cross from the right into the net from close in to make it two before the break.
Whitehawk doubled their tally in the second period as Tighe and Ofori-Acheampong both converted chances.
Pagham’s best chance was a sitter which Chalaye somehow missed before Seamus Tilley repeated the trick minutes later.
