Farnborough are back on home turf this week as Tonbridge Angels make the trip to the Saunders Transport Community Stadium.
Boro drew 1-1 with Maidstone United last time out. A stoppage time equaliser from Levi Amantchi cancelled out a Taylor Maloney penalty. This meant Spencer Day’s side are still without a win on the road this season. The Yellows now sit 12th in The Vanarama National League South table.
Tuesday’s visitors Tonbridge Angels won their first game since Saturday 2 September in their last fixture. A 90th minute penalty from Lewis Gard gave The Angels a 3-2 win over high-flying Bath City. Their opponents had gone 2-1 up before half-time, after goals from Scott Wilson and Cody Cooke cancelled out Jamie Fielding’s eighth minute opener. But two penalties from Lewis Gard in the second half gave Tonbridge Angels all three points and their first win in six games.
The result lifted Jay Saunders’ men up to 18th in The Vanarama National League South.
Ahead of the arrival of The Angels, Boro boss Spencer Day has this to say: “They’re on their way back, they’ve got some great players. It is a case of who’s fit, who feels right.”
“The home performances have generally been decent. We know we’re very close, we’ve got some great players. Everyone’s buzzing around the place.”
Farnborough were beaten twice by Tonbridge Angels last season. The first game was a 1-2 defeat on the road in Kent.
The reverse fixture saw The Angels come to Hampshire and won 2-1 again, with two goals in the final 15 minutes to overturn a 1-0 Farnborough lead.
The Kent outfit have won twice on the road this season. A 2-1 win over Chippenham Town and a 5-2 win at Slough Town. A draw against Weymouth in their most recent away game has seen The Angels pick up seven points in six games on the road this season.
Back at home under the lights, let’s keep up our unbeaten home record. Come on Farnborough!
