Farnborough return to action on Good Friday as they travel to Chelmsford City, in a vital clash in the race for the Play-Offs.

It was a difficult result last time out for Boro, as they lost 1-2 on the road at Chippenham Town. However, given their good run of form, and the fact that The Yellows remain in the Play-Off places, mean that it isn’t looking too bad for Spencer Day’s side.

However, Friday’s game against Chelmsford City is one of the most crucial fixtures of the season in order to keep the Play-Off hopes alive.

The Essex hosts sit 4th in the table on 68 points after what has been a fantastic season for The Clarets, especially after finishing 19th in the previous campaign.

Robbie Simpson’s side are currently on a three-game winning streak, with vital wins coming against fellow Play-Off contenders, Dartford and Worthing, and they also beat relegation threatened Concord Rangers.

Unfortunately, Ollie Robinson missed out in the midweek defeat, being replaced during the warm-up by CJ Fearn, so hopefully he will be able to return to the side for Friday’s game.

Boro have lost their previous four fixtures against The Clarets, including a 2-6 defeat in January 2015. They have not won against Chelmsford City since a 2-0 home win in October 2013. The Yellows have not won at the Melbourne Community Stadium since a 1-0 victory back in April 2011.

It’s 4th vs 7th in The Vanarama National League South. Come on Farnborough!
