Farnborough play their first home game since the FA Cup victory, as Oxford City come to the Easy as HGV Stadium this weekend.
Farnborough are coming off a fantastic 1-0 away win against Weymouth, thanks to a magnificent header from Jack Ball in first half stoppage time.
The win saw Farnborough rise to 18th in the table and put them on a run of six games unbeaten. The run comes after a tough start to the season however Spencer Day’s side has started to click now and the great run of form shows just that.
Day says “it shows how far we’ve come” to come off the back of the two longest journey’s his side will face this season and to come away with four out of a possible six and even be disappointed that they didn’t come away with six.
Manager Spencer Day says it will be “great to get back at home” after two of the three longest away days of the season back-to-back, which the Farnborough fans came out in excellent voice for.
Oxford City travel to Farnborough with a nine game unbeaten run stretching across all competitions. With five of those games coming in the league. These include back to back wins in the league over Havant & Waterlooville last Saturday and Taunton Town on Tuesday night. Oxford City currently sit ninth in the table after their strong run of form and Ross Jenkins will be hoping his side can continue that run.
Ross Jenkins is a former Watford midfielder who played 81 times for The Hornets between 2008-2014. And has made 5 caps for England’s U20 side.
The three previous times the two sides have faced each other include a 2-1 win for Farnborough, a 2-0 win for Oxford City and a 1-1 draw in the most recent meeting all the way back in 2010.
Enjoy being back at home Farnborough fans. Come on Farnborough!
