Farnborough return to action this weekend with a tricky home test against table toppers Ebbsfleet United.

It’s been a tough start to the year for Boro having seen multiple games being called off due to poor weather, putting a halt to the incredible progress the side had been making.

Despite the constant game postponements, Farnborough remain 12th in the League and look to be in a good position to push into the top 10, having as many as five games in hand over the teams around them.

Visitors Ebbsfleet United have recovered from a slight dip in form, where they lost four on the bounce, including two heavy defeats to Dartford, and are now on a three-game win streak.

Those three wins have seen Dennis Kutrieb’s men regain their place at the top of the table, level on points with Dartford, with two games in hand.

Boro boss Spencer Day acknowledges the difficult task ahead of his side. “They’re a fantastic footballing side, we know they are, and they should be winning this division. I think every manager in this division would say the same.”

“However, this division is so tough, every game is tough. We’ve got fantastic form, we’re 12 unbeaten, and we haven’t lost a league game since September… we have nothing to fear.”

The previous game between the sides back in August was an incredible contest, with Ebbsfleet United eventually winning the contest 4-2 courtesy of goals from Dominic Poleon, Rakish Bingham, Greg Cundle and Darren McQueen.

Farnborough have not beaten The Fleet since a 3-0 win back in 2011. Since then, Ebbsfleet United have dominated the fixture, winning 4-2, 1-0, and a 3-0 result three games in a row in 2014, before the 4-2 result earlier in the season.

Let’s return to action with a win, come on Farnborough!
