Farnborough will look to win their first League game in over three weeks as they travel to Park View Road to take on 13th placed Welling United.

Boro will look to build on the 2-2 draw over Hampton & Richmond Borough at the weekend, a game that they took the lead in twice.

The draw left The Yellows 15th in the table, three points behind Welling United, who sit 13th. Farnborough have two games in hand on Tuesday’s opponents.

The Wings also drew their most recent game. A 1-1 draw over 11th placed Bath City thanks to a late equaliser from Taylor Maloney.

Manager Spencer Day was complimentary of his side’s opponents saying they are “a really high-quality team” whilst also referencing Welling United’s patchy form so far this season, “it’s got to be fair that they’re hit and miss.”

Warren Feeney’s outfit are without a League win in five games, with their last win being a 1-0 home win over Hungerford Town. However, since then they have lost 5-1 to Dartford, drew 0-0 to Slough Town, had a 1-1 draw with Concord Rangers, lost 2-1 at home to bottom of the table Weymouth, and drew their most recent game 1-1 against Bath City. Their most recent win in all competitions was against Havant & Waterlooville in a game that finished 3-2 in the FA Trophy.

Farnborough’s record against Welling United has been poor, with only two wins, against The Wings, a 1-0 win in March 2006 and a 2-1 win in August the same year. Since then, Welling United have been dominant and have won six of the previous seven matches, the only game they didn’t win was a 2-2 draw in 2010.

Let’s finally put an end to the bad streak against Welling United. Come on Farnborough!
