After a sensational 3-0 victory over Maidenhead at the weekend, Farnborough will want to start the final week of the season with 3 points to contribute towards a high a League finish as possible on Monday afternoon when they travel to 7th placed Bath City.
(Skrill South League Fixture – Kick off 3pm)
Three points on Saturday moved Farnborough onto 49 for the season, but they will be keen to improve on that total with a victory over the Bath City. This is Farnborough’s final away game of the season – of their 20 away games played this season, they have won four, drawn three and lost 13 so will want to wrap up the season with a good away result.
Previewing Monday’s trip to Bath, manager Spencer Day said: “I rate Bath very, very highly. I know they will be disappointed they haven’t made the play-offs. It’s a game that is officially a deadrubber. We will literally have twelve fit players, if that, and I’ve just said to them, we will go there with a smile that we’ve done our job this season. We will make sure that we put in a shift.
“We’re delighted that FaST have kindly sponsored a coach so we know that we’ve got supporters going down there, and I’ve said, as much as we can go there, and the pressure’s off against a very strong side, that we go there and we put a real shift in and enjoy the last week of the season in both games and look forward. We’ve earnt the right to do that, but we will make sure that we show pride when we pull those shirts on for these two final games.
“We are bare bones, we know that but we’ve got 49 points with two games to go so overall it’s been a season of highs and lows, we know that, and that’s what you expect with what we’ve had to achieve this season and lets try and finish this final week off with good performances.”
At The Mayday Trust Park so far the season, Bath have played 18 and of those; won 10, drawn 6 and lost 4, managing a total of 34 goals on home turf.
Last time out on Saturday, 10 men Bath lost 3-1 at Gosport Borough, having to play midfielder Josh Low as a stand in goalkeeper with no substitute goalkeeper on the bench, following custodian Stuart Moore’s dismissal early into the second half.
Farnborough lost out 4-2 in the reverse fixture earlier this season and face a Bath side that look to have narrowly missed out on a play-off position this season.
