Looking to end a disappointing 2015 on a high, Farnborough make the short journey to Wheatsheaf Park to take on 18th placed Staines Town, kick off 7:45pm.

Farnborough Camp

The final game of a disappointing 2015 on the road sees Spencer Days side travel to Middlesex to take on local rivals Staines Town.

A first half winner from Reading loanee Bogdan Vastsuk was enough to secure a seventh League win last Saturday, as Farnborough beat Burgess Hill Town 1-0.

However, Boro’ are still searching for their first away win in the League this year, after halting a three game winless run with victory at the weekend.

The Yellows are now five points adrift of safety in the Ryman League Premier Division, with 23 points from 25 games and a goal difference of -22.

Speaking after Saturdays narrow 1-0 Home victory, Manager Spencer Day said: “We’ve just got to try and get a result away from home. Staines are a very different prospect.

“Their pitch will be one of the better that’s left now in this Season. They’re full of pace. I know they’re on a bad run.

“We’re on an appalling run away from home but we’ve been better recently – we didn’t deserve to loose at Lewes. We’ve been very competitive away from home recently there’s no question about it but we need to get a win.

“We’ve said to them [the players] just now that the discipline that we showed today to play in the right areas on a difficult pitch, we need to show away from home.

“We set up the right way. We will be set up to try and get points from the game but also respect the pace that Staines have, but it’s mostly about us.

“We’ve got a very young squad. We definitely need additions. We’re working very hard to try and achieve that.

“But at the end of the day we just literally take the cliché one game at a time and we’ve looking forward to Staines.

“Our form recently has been very good and even when we’ve lost we’ve been very competitive. We’ve got nothing to fear and it’s a very buoyant dressing room with the three points today.

Farnborough last time out (vs Burgess Hill Town): Aaron Bufton (gk), John Oyenuga, Freddie Grant,  CJ Fearn (Capt), Gary MacDonald, Darryl Siaw, Andrew Jenkinson, Lewis Collins, Bodgan Vastsuk, Jamie White, Aruna Kamara, Jack Barton, Ryan Zidyana, Dean Joseph-Whittingham, Hussein Mohammed and Andrew Seriki.

Opposition Camp

Staines Town are managed by Nicky Forster and currently sit in 18th place in the Ryman League Premier Division, with 29 points from 23 games.

Last time out, The Swans narrowly 2-3 lost away to 2nd place Hampton & Richmond Borough.

Luke Wanadio and Michael Kalu recovered a two goal deficit with a second half comeback but an 80th minute winner subdued Forster’s side to a tenth League defeat of the Season.

Staines Town’s top scorer is striker Pat Cox who currently has 10 League goals to his name, one of which was a last-minute winner against Farnborough back in September.

Giving his views after Saturdays 2-3 Away defeat, Manager Nicky Forster explained: “The undoing of us at the moment is our inability to keep clean sheets.

“We’ve conceded three today and it’s very difficult to win a game of football – and it’s a lot of pressure you put on your forward players – when you concede that many.

“But, to come away from home to the team in 2nd in the League – maybe 1st now – and score twice, I would expect to come away with some sort of result. Win or draw. Our frailties at the back have been our undoing.”

Speaking about his players Forster added: “At the moment, we will look and see what we’ve got. We’ve lost a centre-half again today. It’s been our undoing this year, that’s for sure. We’ll keep going, we’ve got to keep going.

“We’re in a bit of a hole – it’s a self made hole. We’ve dug ourselves into this position and we’ll dig ourselves out.”

Staines Town last time out (vs Hampton & Richmond Borough): Jack Turner (gk), Erivaldo Felix, Jack Bennett, Tommy Brewer, Mitchal Gough, Joe O’Cearuill, Luke Wanadio, Ahmed Abdulla, Pat Cox, Jack Hutchinson, Fumnaya Shomotun, Callum McAllister, Harry Churchill (gk), Michael Kalu, Michael Kinsella and Terence Vancooten.
