Looking to bounce back from defeat, Farnborough welcome Weston-Super-Mare to Paddy Power Park for what is their first home game of the new season.

The Yellows lost 2-0 at Boreham Wood in the league opener on Saturday but were unlucky not to have scored in a much improved second half.

Following the Boreham Wood game, Manager Spencer Day said, “We get a couple of people back, we were bare bones today (against Boreham Wood). I get criticised for not filling the bench, there’s no point just bringing in people when I know I’ve got players coming through – we didn’t have Page and Bennett today, they’ll be available. We’re waiting for an international clearance; we had a couple of injuries today so we should be stronger on Monday.”

“[We will] Certainly almost back to full strength I hope by this time next week. It’s a home game in front of our fans, I thought the travelling fans today did a good job trying to lift us, particularly in that 20-25 minute period in the second half where we were bright and we really pinned the home side back [although] we’ve got to score in that period.

“We’ve got to take the positives that we’ve had a decent pre-season but this is the Conference South, it’s a tough division and it was a hard lesson and as I said, when you’re one down with an absolute wonderstrike in the first 60 seconds it just shows you how tough it can be. We’ll move on, take those positives and fingers crossed we can get a good result in our first home game in front of our own fans.”

Visitors Weston-Super-Mare finished last season in the top half of the table in 11th place and are managed by first team coach Micky Bell.

On Saturday the Seagulls lost their opening fixture 1-0 at home to Bishop’s Stortford, with Ryan Melaugh scoring the only goal of the game in what was a cruel end to the game for tomorrow’s visitors.
