Farnborough return to League action for the first time in nearly three weeks as they play Hungerford Town in back-to-back fixtures.

Boro will be hoping to bounce back after losing on penalties in the FA Trophy at home to Braintree Town on Tuesday night. Despite that defeat, Farnborough are currently on a nine-game unbeaten run in the League, with the last defeat coming nearly three months ago.

The Yellows must travel to West Berkshire for the first meeting, before returning back home on New Year’s Day.

Speaking after the FA Trophy exit, Manager Spencer Day believes his side will be “bullied, outworked, and we will lose” if they play like they did against Braintree Town. He also said that “Hungerford will fight and scrap” and his side “must show the fight and grit and the quality we’ve got on a very difficult pitch at Hungerford”.

Despite no League action in nearly three weeks, Boro still remain 14th in The Vanarama National League South table, but have plenty of games in hand over the sides around them due to games being called off and participation in various Cup competitions.

Hungerford Town currently sit bottom of The Vanarama National League South and have only won three games this season, most recently beating 20th placed Slough Town 2-1 at home.

While their home form has been slightly better, The Crusaders are without a point in six away games. Their last points came in a 3-2 win over mid-table Bath City well over two months ago.

Let’s end a magnificent 2022 on a high and begin 2023 in the same form. Come on Farnborough!
