Farnborough travel to Kent this weekend as they look to the double over Dartford.
Spencer Day’s side will be hoping that they can bounce back after the 0-0 draw in midweek against Welling United, which saw Farnborough miss another penalty this season – their 10th miss from 14 attempts this campaign.
Boro enter the game with the best defensive record in The Vanarama National League South and will need to be at their defensive best this weekend to keep out a Dartford side who have scored 66 goals so far this season.
Farnborough were impressive in the previous fixture between the sides, winning 3-1 thanks to Hisham Kasimu and Jonathon Page scoring two first half goals and Olly Pendlebury scoring a wonderful free-kick to restore The Yellow’s two goal advantage after Kristian Campbell pulled one back after half-time.
The Yellows will once again be without Mason Bloomfield, John Oyenuga and Reggie Young who are all out with injuries that have come at the worst possible time in the season. There is hope that Ollie Robinson will return, after missing the game against Welling United due to illness. If Robinson is out that will leave Boro with a squad of 14 players to take to Princes Park, barring any potential signings that could be made.
Dartford’s home form this season has been nothing short of impressive, of the 17 home games they have played this term, they have managed 12 wins, two draws and three losses, their most recent home defeat being against Hemel Hempstead Town, losing 3-1.
Despite sitting second in the table, The Darts are without a win in three, and their form since the turn of the year has been patchy, seeing them drop to 17 points behind runaway leaders Ebbsfleet United, despite being three points clear back in mid-January.
A massive test awaits. Come on Farnborough!
