Having had to wait until the end of October for their first home game in The Vanarama National League South of the month, Farnborough returned to the Easy As HGV Stadium for the visit of Ross Jenkins’ Oxford City.

The visitors had a glorious opportunity to open the scoring on 13 minutes when Kladi Lolos raced through on goal and one-on-one with goalkeeper Jack Turner, but the Oxford City striker took too long and was tackled by Sam Deering.

Farnborough opened the scoring on 19 minutes when good footwork from Selim Saied sent Francis Amartey running on to a ball down the left. The Aldershot Town loanee pulled the ball back to Hisham Kasimu who beat defender Tom Harrison to the ball and finished first time into the net.

It was two quickfire goals that did the damage as Hisham Kasimu bagged his second of the game just five minutes later. A clever one-two and burst of acceleration into the box created a chance which the striker tucked away low into the far corner.

Oxford City were denied a goal of their own on 44 minutes when Jack Turner was called into action to keep out a strike from distance from visiting Captain Reece Fleet.

HALF-TIME: Farnborough 2 Oxford City 0

Eight minutes after the break, Boro’s Jack Ball drew a fantastic acrobatic save from Oxford City’s Ben Dudzinski to tip a looping half-volley over the bar.

The visitors did pull a goal back on 77 minutes through substitute Jayden Carbon who finished into the net when one-on-one with Jack Turner, after a mix-up in the Farnborough back-line.

Five minutes later and it was almost three for Boro with left-back Jordan Norville-Williams seeing his powerful strike crash off the crossbar, with Ben Dudzinski getting a hand to the piledriver.

Farnborough centre-back Kevin Lokko had his left-footed volley saved by Ben Dudzinski on 88 minutes, as The Yellows ran the clock down to pick up maximum points in the League for the week.
