Another challenge is just around the corner for Spencer Day’s men as Boro make the long Tuesday night journey to take on promotion chasers Dover Athletic in the Skrill South.
(Skrill South League Fixture – Kick off 7.45pm)
Unbeaten in three and playing with confidence, Boro go into Tuesday’s game having reached the 40 point mark for the season on Saturday and will be determined to keep away from the relegation zone.
A third League win in March could see Boro rise to 13th place with 43 points, depending on other midweek results.
Boro are unbeaten in their last three League games and eleven points clear of 20th placed FA Trophy runner-ups Gosport Borough going into the Tuesday’s fixture.
Loan goalkeeper Ross Fitzsimons is expected to keep the red jersey following on from an impressive debut in a 3-1 win at Bishop’s Stortford last time out.
Dover currently occupy the final play-off place in 5th but do hold a surprisingly disappointing home record which consists of 6 wins; 4 draws and 7 defeats from 17 games so will be looking to continue their quest for promotion with three points on Tuesday.
The Whites will be without defender Sean Raggett (knee) and forward Jeff Goulding (head) who are both injury doubts ahead of Tuesday night’s game, while Chris Kinnear Jnr completes his two-match suspension.
Last time out, Dover could only manage a stalemate against South Coast rivals Eastbourne Borough on Saturday, and highlights of that game can be viewed here.
Whites have not beaten Farnborough at Crabble since September 2010 when a hat-trick from Adam Birchall helped his side to a thrilling 6-3 win.
Ahead of the game, manager Chris Kinnear briefly commented on their opposition: “they are inconsistent but lively and I’m sure they will be trying really hard against us”
One to watch: Tom Murphy – 12 goals
Dover Athletic were the first opposition this season for Boro in the Skrill South, who were kicking off their season late in September, with a thrilling 1-0 victory courtesy of a Dave Tarpey goal infront of 1,139 spectators in the bright sunshine.
