Farnborough look to continue their unbeaten run as they travel to bottom of the table, Weymouth.

Farnborough battled out a hard-fought 1-1 draw last time out against Dover Athletic thanks to a goal from winger Reggie Young, his first goal in the League this season.

The draw saw Farnborough’s unbeaten run in all competitions stretch to four games, three wins and one draw.

Spencer Day will be hoping his side continue the impressive run against Weymouth after what was a very impressive performance at the weekend against Dover Athletic, with the result not being able to match.

There are currently no absences expected for the trip, however both Michael Fernandes and Francis Amartey are doubts after falling ill. Fernandes didn’t travel for the trip to Dover Athletic, while Amartey was set to start but was forced out during the warm-up on Saturday. However, Day will “have to see how people are feeling.” Not only if people are ill but also with the tough stretch of games that the players have been on, and will continue to be on over the next couple of months.

Day also mentioned the “ridiculous” decision to have two of Farnborough’s three longest away trips back-to-back on a Saturday and then on Tuesday, but continues to say his side “will have to get on with it.”

Opponents Weymouth picked up their first League win of the season at the weekend, beating Slough Town 3-2 on the road, giving them back-to-back wins in all competitions after they knocked out Havant & Waterlooville in the FA Cup.

Day was very complimentary on his assessment of Tuesday’s opponents, saying it’ll be a “very difficult game” especially with the changes that new Manager Bobby Wilkinson has made. The Weymouth boss has been in the job for a little over a month and the side has already seen some improvements as evidenced by their previous two results.

In the previous four fixtures between Weymouth and Farnborough have played against each other. Weymouth have won three games and Farnborough winning the other game, a 4-3 home win in September 2018.

The last game between the sides at Weymouth was in April 2019 which Weymouth won emphatically, a disappointing 0-3 defeat for Farnborough.

For those travelling to the game, have a safe journey. Come on Farnborough!
