Farnborough are on the road once again, making to trip to The Queen Elizabeth II Stadium to take on 21st place Enfield Town this Saturday, kick off 3pm.

Betting Preview: Back Farnborough to kick start their season against Enfield

Farnborough Camp

Farnborough return Ryman Premier League Division action with a trip to North London to face Enfield Town.

Defender Adam Nditi starts the first of a three match ban, while Farnborough are able to welcome Bradley Fraser back into the mix after the striker received International clearance during the week.

.Tom Broadbent will also be available for selection as the solid defender returns from unavailability.

Speaking after Monday evening’s FA Cup exit, Manager Spencer Day told GetHampshire: “Again, everything has gone against us. The first goal is outrageous, the Referee has made a mistake – again.

“It’s not a free-kick, he knows it now as he’s apologised for it, but I’m sick of it. He’s right when he says to me afterwards that one bad decision doesn’t warrant a 3-2 defeat, but when you need that little bit of luck and bit of momentum like we do at the moment then it’s hard to take.

Day stressed: “When everything goes against you like this it’s hard when you’re so young because you don’t have the experience or the oomph yet to deal with it.

“We played some absolutely fabulous football at times and created so many chances but we’ve committed suicide for both the second and third goal. There’s a lot of factors involved tonight but it boils down to the simple fact that we can’t seem to win an FA Cup replay and that’s really hard to take because it’s such a vital income stream to the Club.”

Farnborough last time out: Victor Sylvestre Brotons (gk), Jack Barton, CJ Fearn, Martin Dynan, Chinua Cole, Lewis Collins, Jordan Wynter, Bobbie Dale, Harry Williams, Yasin Ben-Elmhanni, Nathan Chambers, Meuga Lheureux, Nick Awford, Shaun Sims and Dean Joseph-Whittingham.

Opposition Camp

The Towners are managed by former Braintree Town midfidler, Bradley Quinton and they currently occupy the final relegation spot, sitting in 21st place heading into Saturday’s clash.

Goals from wingers Tyler Campbell and George Brislen-Hall were enough for Enfield Town to see off a Billericay Town side that ended the game with 9 men, 2-0 in a Home FA Cup Replay on Tuesday evening.

Speaking to Enfield Gazette & Advertiser after Tuesday’s FA Cup Replay victory, Manager Bradley Quinton said:  “Our injury problems are easing gradually, and I maintain the real Enfield Town will show themselves once we are back to full strength as we attempt to get to the performance levels we were hitting at the back end of last season.

“You certainly don’t become a bad team overnight and I’ve got full faith in the lads. When four or five key players get injured at the same time, as happened to us, then that can effect any team.

“Corey [Whitely] is probably a week or two away from returning. He’s eager to get back and play but just needs to do some more strengthening work.

“We’ve got two more home games coming up now and the boys are looking forward to it. We could have another couple of new signings around by Saturday and I think that things are looking good for the club.

Quinton continued: “As I’ve said before, a lot of teams want to bring us down after the great job we did getting into the play-off positions last term and we’re well watched now.

“Last year proved that nothing is settled in the first few months of any season, and we’ll continue to roll up our sleeves like we did last time around. We are building momentum slowly and we are getting there.”

Enfield Town last time out: Nathan McDonald (gk), Jordan Lockie, Ricky Gabriel, Claudio Vilcu, Harold Joseph, Stanley Mugou (Capt), George Brislen-Hall, Nathan Livings, Harry Ottaway, Bobby Devyne, Tyler Campbell, Olumide Durejayi, Ryan Doyle, Darnell Wynter, Micky Parcell, Tayshan Hayden-Smith, Connor Witherspoon and Joe Stevens.
