For the second time in two weeks, Farnborough face Hampton & Richmond Borough, this time at home.

Spencer Day’s side return to Vanarama National League South action for the first time since the 0-0 draw away at Braintree Town, after two weeks playing in the FA Trophy and the FA Cup.

Those games came with mixed results with Boro beating Saturday’s opponents 1-0 thanks to a late winner from Hisham Kasimu, and a 1-4 loss to Wrexham in the FA Cup, which brought an end to a 12-game unbeaten run.

Despite not playing in the League for a couple of weeks, Boro remain in 15th place in The Vanarama National League South, and should results go their way, they could end the weekend in 13th, with plenty of games in hand thanks to the games missed due to the FA Cup.

Hampton & Richmond Borough currently sit 17th in the table, having lost their most recent game 0-2 at home to Dover Athletic. Gary McCann’s men have lost six of their last seven games in all competitions.

Having played each other so recently, there is no real team news for either side. Except that Francis Amartey, who had of course previously been at Farnborough and scored the second in the FA Cup win over Sutton United, now plays for Hampton & Richmond Borough and made his debut against the Hampshire outfit in the previous meeting between the sides.

This game is also a return to home for Boro as they play their first game at the Easy As HGV Stadium since the impressive 3-1 win over high-flying Dartford.

A return to the League, let’s return to winning ways. Come on Farnborough!
