Farnborough are back on the road this weekend as they make the trip to the Gallagher Stadium to take on Maidstone United.

It was a first win in four last time out for Spencer Day’s side, with goals from Connor Hall and Michael Folivi giving Boro a 2-1 win over last season’s Play-Off Finalists St Albans City.

The win extended The Yellows’ unbeaten home run and lifted them back in to the top 10, just two points off the Play-Off places, despite a difficult run as of late.

Opponents Maidstone United were in FA Cup action last weekend. The Stones made the long trip to Torquay United, where they won 2-0 and reached the First Round Proper of the competition,

George Elokobi’s side last League game was also an away win at Torquay United. This time, only a 1-0 victory thanks to a goal from Sam Bone. The Stones are currently fourth in The Vanarama National League South, just two points off top of the table Yeovil Town.

Ahead of the trip to Kent, Boro boss Spencer Day had this to say about this weekend’s opposition: “They’re rightfully right at the very top. Our injury list is just quite frankly, beyond a joke – and I don’t think it’s going to change.

“We’re going to have to look at it very hard. It’s going to be a very tough outing. It’s a very difficult place to go at any time. It’s one of the hardest places of the season to go, but we’ll look forward to it.”

Farnborough’s trip to Maidstone United will be the first time the two sides have ever faced each other in any competition.

Boro are still searching for their first win on the road this season. Meanwhile, The Stones have only played four games at home this season and have won twice, drawn once and lost once.

A tough test awaits. Let’s hope for a first away win of the season. Come on Farnborough!
