Farnborough play their second away game in a row as they travel to West Sussex to take on Worthing. 

Boro won just their third game on the road last time out with a 2-0 victory over Bath City.

Edon Pruti, who was named Man of the Match, opened the scoring for The Yellows with his first Farnborough goal in the 22nd minute. Luton Town loanee Millar Matthews-Lewis doubled Boro’s lead in the 55th minute also, with his first goal in a Farnborough shirt. The win leaves Spencer Day’s side 12th in the table, but closes the gap to the Play-Off places down to seven points.

Worthing lost their first game under Interim Manager Aarran Racine 1-3 at home to Taunton Town.

Seb Bolton put The Peacocks into the lead after 19 minutes. The Rebels had the chance to get back level just before half-time, but Ollie Pearce’s penalty was saved by Dan Lavercombe to keep the game at 1-0. Second half goals from Nick Grimes and Nathanial Jarvis sealed the game for Taunton Town, putting them three goals to the good. Jack Wadham got a goal back for the hosts in the 90th minute, but it was only a consolation as Worthing lost their third game in four matches.

Ahead of the trip to the Sussex Transport Community Stadium, Boro boss Spencer Day had this to say: “The boys are exhausted. Worthing have had a poor result today, but they’re a side who blew us away for 45 minutes at home.”

“When they’re on it, they can rip anyone. I’d love to put the same team out after that performance [against Bath City] but a lot of the lads are exhausted.”

Worthing blew Farnborough away in the two sides’ last encounter. Three second half goals from Joan Luque, Ollie Pearce and Ricky Aguiar gave Worthing a 3-0 win and condemned Boro to their first home defeat of the season.

The Mackerel Men have picked up less points at home than they have on the road this season. The Rebels have a very strong record of nine wins, four draws and six defeats on their home astroturf. 

After a strong away performance last time out, let’s back that up and pick up some more crucial points in the run-in. Come on Farnborough!
