The FA Cup run continues this weekend as Farnborough travel to north Wales to face National League side Wrexham.

Farnborough travel to Wrexham on a 12-game unbeaten run that extends all the way back to the 5-1 away win at Swindon Supermarine in the Third Round Qualifying of the FA Cup on October 1st.

Boro’ go into the game with a full week of preparation for the game after getting through to the Third Round Proper of the FA Trophy, with a late win over Hampton & Richmond Borough last time out.

Manager Spencer Day was very complimentary of the hosts when asked about the game, saying that Wrexham are a “massive club, supporters are incredible, and they’ve got a fantastic team and manager.”

Day also knows that his side are no pushover however and that they aren’t “going there to make up the numbers, we’re going to give it absolutely everything, and it’s the FA Cup, we’ll see what happens.”

Opponents Wrexham have caught the attention of the world over the past two years after they were bought by Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney back in February 2021, completely changing the trajectory of the club.

The Welsh side currently sit top of The National League table, winning 14 of their opening 20 games this season.

Like Farnborough, they are also on an incredible run of form, unbeaten in their last 11 games, with their last defeat coming at the hands of Notts County, a 0-1 away defeat at the beginning of October.

Wrexham have also won their last 12 home games making Boro’s task even greater. However, Farnborough have been very impressive on the road this season and are unbeaten in their last 8 away matches.

This match will also be the first time that these two sides have faced each other, the closest the sides got to meeting was in the 1992 FA Cup when Wrexham beat Arsenal and Farnborough Town narrowly missed out on going through to face Wrexham, losing 0-1 to West Ham after a Replay.

Should Farnborough win the game, not only will the potential of facing a Premier League side become available, but also £67,000 which will go a long way into helping the club.

It’s arguably the biggest match of the season, let’s keep the run going. Come on Farnborough!
