After the disappointment of back-to-back defeats over the past week, AFC Uckfield Town will be hoping to return to winning ways tomorrow, as they host Lancing in the Southern Combination League. Kick-off at the Oaks is at three o’clock.

In the Mid Sussex League, Buxted are at home to Hollington. And there are also home fixtures this week for Nutley against AFC Varndeanians Reserves and for Newick, who meet Fairfield. Meanwhile, in a cup game, Ridgewood visit Ashurst Wood.

After another goal-less draw in midweek, Lewes will be aiming to get their play-off hopes back on track tomorrow, when they entertain Sussex rivals Whitehawk in the Bostik Premier League.

And Brighton and Hove Albion go in search of a much-needed first Premier League win in 2019 tomorrow afternoon, when they welcome bottom-of-the-table Huddersfield to the Amex Stadium.

In rugby union, Uckfield need one more victory from their remaining three games to confirm their promotion, although they face a tough test tomorrow, when they travel to closest rivals Crawley.

And finally, it’s good luck to the team from the Uckfield-based Sky High Trampoline Gymnastics Academy who will be competing in the National Schools Finals in Birmingham tomorrow.
