Farnborough return to League action this Saturday, taking on a struggling Cheshunt side who are without a win in six.

Last time out in The Vanarama National League South, it took a last-gasp penalty from striker Mason Bloomfield to get Boro back on track after the disappointing home defeat to Hemel Hempstead Town.

The win against Concord Rangers was followed up by an emphatic 8-0 win over AFC Portchester in the Hampshire Senior Cup to advance to the Quarter-finals.

Speaking ahead of the game, Yellows boss Spencer Day knows his side are in for a tough challenge. “We know that it’s going to be very, very difficult.”“We’re looking forward to it. Looking forward to a really tough battle, a very physical battle. And we need to be on the front foot, we’re the home side, and we need to force the issue.”

Craig Edwards’ visitors are on a run of four draws in a row, with their most recent result a 1-1 draw at home to Welling United.

The four draws back-to-back have allowed The Ambers to escape the relegation zone for now, as they sit just one point above 21st placed Concord Rangers.

Cheshunt’s away form this season has been a struggle, as they have lost eight of their 13 away games so far this season, winning only twice.

The two sides met back in September and ended in a 1-0 win for Boro -t heir first away win of the season.

Let’s hope to build on the two previous wins and push closer to the top ten. Come on Farnborough!
