Can Boro make it a hat-trick of wins at promotion-chasing Whitehawk?
Farnborough ended their Bank Holiday weekend with six valuable points following back-to-back wins over Wealdstone and Basingstoke Town. A stern test awaits this weekend as Spencer Day takes his Farnborough side to promotion-chasing Whitehawk.
Spencer Day’s first three points of the season came at Wealdstone last Saturday courtesy of a Matt Ball brace in a 2-1 away win. In the following game, goals from Dan Bennett and Phil Page gave the Farnborough their second three points of the season with a 2-1 win over Basingstoke Town, lifting the Yellows to 14th position after two ruthlessly hard fixtures within 48 hours. And the tough start doesn’t end yet as Steve King’s men are next up for the Yellows, a game that will see Boro take on 9th place Whitehawk.
Dan Bennett scored his first goal of the season on Monday
Saturday’s hosts Whitehawk finished 19th in the Conference South last season so the Club subsequently saw a summer of changes as former Farnborough Manager Steve King was appointed First Team Manager and a lot of significant changes were made to the squad. Just some of the recent big name signings include Sam Deering, John Paul-Kissock, Sergio Torres and Matthew Barnes-Homer.
Of their five opening fixtures, The Hawks have won their last three and lost their first two, scoring and conceding six.
