Farnborough look to move to 11 games unbeaten as they travel to Braintree Town who are looking to keep themselves in the Play-Off places.

Boro took their unbeaten run to 10 games after an emphatic 3-1 victory over high-flying Dartford and will hope they can continue that run against a Braintree Town side who are struggling with form as of late.

The win over Dartford took Boro to 15th place in The Vanarama National League South, however due to the FA Cup run they have games in hand over the sides around them.

Braintree Town are seventh in the League table, just inside the Play-Off places. However, they have lost back-to-back games, a 0-1 loss at bottom of the table Weymouth, and a 1-4 defeat at Dartford.

Despite the hosts’ stuttering form, Farnborough Manager Spencer Day believes that their season so far has been “fantastic” and that they have “followed on from last year” after finishing strongly to cement 17th place in the League. Day also praised Braintree Town’s players, saying that they are “big, strong and a good footballing side”.

The Iron’s Manager Angelo Harrop took over at the end of the 21/22 season and has used a 3-5-2 formation to improve his side’s performances which has seen them make a push for the Play-Off places.

In the previous four meetings between the sides, each team has two wins over the other. Braintree Town’s wins were a 3-0 in the Conference South and a 2-0 win in the FA Vase. With Farnborough’s wins coming in the same competition, a 6-2 win in the FA Vase, and a 2-1 win in the Conference South. The 2-1 victory came all the way back in March 2011 and was the last time the two sides faced each other.

Let’s keep the unbeaten run going, Come on Farnborough!
