The four points collected mean the hosts remain second in the Ryman South League Table, although, only do so on goals scored, ahead of Folkestone Invicta.
Home boss Ray Turner also opted to rotate his back line for the goalless draw with Sittingbourne and will have to decide whether he wants to do so again.
Jack Sullivan and Jamie Maxted both dropped to the substitute’s bench and were replaced by the returning Aidan Sherlock and Matthew Bourne.
Turner will have to decide if he wants to risk Maxted, as the 25-year-old is just one yellow card away from a suspension, but will see the deadline pass following this fixture as he looks to have a fully fit squad to choose from for the Ryman South Play-offs.
Meanwhile, should Stanford immediately return to the starting line-up, Turner will have to decide whether David Botterill, George Monger or Charley Robertson will be sacrificed.
Somebody will also have to drop out of the squad to make way for Stanford’s return with Under-21 captain Daniel King and Chris Webber, 20, among the possible candidates.
Meanwhile, the visitors are currently rooted to the bottom of the league table, and with just three fixtures to go, appear likely to be relegated.
The Hornets bagged a rare win against Corinthian-Casuals on Monday but that didn’t prevent former management duo of Anthony Storey and Cliff Cant from being asked to vacant their positions.
Since then, Dominic Di Paola has been announced as the new first-team manager.
Though, in far less positive recent news, the away team have taken just one point from their six games in Kent this campaign.
This came in a 1-1 draw with fellow relegation strugglers Ramsgate, while they were recently beaten 4-0 and 5-0 by Hythe Town and Folkestone respectively.
Despite being eight points away from Hastings and East Grinstead Town, who sit just above the relegation zone with nine points to play for, Horsham will be keen to finish as high as they can, in case of a side being offered a reprieve by the Ryman League.
The visitors are currently on 36 points off 43 games and could still catch Redhill, who are on 38 points and Ramsgate, who have 40 points but have one game in hand.
Whilst, a win would see the home team guarantee a top-three finish and a home Play-off Semi-Final with fourth-placed Merstham seven points behind.
In addition, if Faversham are to reach the 100-point mark, they will have to win all three of their remaining contests before the Play-offs.

Faversham Town’s under-16 outfit have enjoyed a successful tournament on their Easter Tour of Holland, as they reached the Final.
The Lilywhites were in superb form, beating Esaarnhem (1-0), Pro Academy (Essex) (2-1) and Kastrup Boldklub (1-0) in the first day of the competition (Saturday 4th April).
They then also were victorious against Luton Town, Newcastle Pinpoint (1-0) and Waldridge Park JFC (4-0), before they lost 5-4 against SCU on penalties after drawing 1-1 in normal time in the Final on the following day (Sunday 5th April).
Nonetheless, the side can be proud of their achievements.
