Farnborough finally look to return to action with a win this weekend as they travel to Twerton Park to take on Bath City in a crucial mid-table clash.

The Yellows haven’t played since the 4-1 demolition of Dulwich Hamlet three weeks ago. Constant postponements due to poor weather and the pitches being frozen has meant Farnborough have missed out on five games, including home matches against Ebbsfleet United, Havant & Waterlooville and Slough Town.

Postponements of fixtures have hindered most teams in The Vanarama National League South and there hasn’t been much movement in the table with Farnborough remaining in 12th for the past three weeks.

Hosts Bath City sit 11th in the table, just two points above Boro, having played four more games. Jerry Gill’s side have only won one of their previous six matches, losing two and drawing the other three.

The Romans nearly got a point out of their previous match against Braintree Town, however conceded in the 94th minute for the fourth defeat in ten matches.

City’s home form has been patchy for the entire season as they sit with a record of five wins, two draws, and five losses at Twerton Park. Farnborough have often impressed away from home this season and have an away record of five wins, three draws, and four losses.

Boro have played seven games against this weekends opposition and have lost all seven of those encounters.

The previous fixture between the sides ended in a 1-0 away win for Bath City at the beginning of the season, with Alex Fletcher scoring the winner early in the second half.

Other results include conceding seven goals in both games in the 14/15 season, losing 7-4 away and 2-7 at home. The 13/14 season wasn’t much better with both games ending in a 2-4 defeat. In 12/13, Farnborough lost 3-2 away and 0-1 at home.

Let’s correct the record and win for the first time against Bath City. Come on Farnborough!
