Farnborough return home to face Welling United in what could prove to be a pivotal match in The Yellows’ Play-Off chase.

Boro kicked off the month with a fantastic away win to Oxford City, handing them their first defeat of the year.

However, now all attention must be turned to Welling United who have proven to be a very difficult test when on the road. The previous fixture between the sides came back in December. It was a close encounter, with Farnborough coming away with a win thanks to a last-gasp winner from Olly Pendlebury.

In Welling United’s previous game, they drew 0-0 away at Hungerford Town.

Speaking after victory at the weekend, Boro boss Spencer Day spoke about the impressive structure at the Kent side: “Welling are an incredibly well funded side. Some fantastic players, they’re nearly all pro’s, they’re full-time. And we know their away form is better than their home form.”

The Wings have recorded six wins on the road this season, also picking up seven draws, with just the four defeats.

In the last five games, Warren Feeney’s men have won once, against Slough Town, lost two, against Braintree Town and Hemel Hempstead Town, and have drawn two, to Hungerford Town and Chippenham Town.

Unfortunately, Farnborough could be without Reggie Young for the midweek clash, as Spencer Day announced that he had injured his ankle in the win over Oxford City.

This adds another name to a growing injury list that already includes the likes of Mason Bloomfield and John Oyenuga.

Let’s hope for a win and keep chasing those Play-Off positions. Come on Farnborough!
