Having bagged 3 points on Monday evening, Farnborough will be looking to build on that result as Spencer Day’s side travel to Tonbridge Angels in the Ryman League Premier Division.
Farnborough will head into Saturday’s Ryman League Premier Division game with plenty of confidence after a 2-1 victory over Bognor Regis Town on Monday evening.
Monday’s crucial 3 points lifted Farnborough off the foot of the Ryman League Premier Division, taking Spencer Day’s side onto six points for the Season.
Once again, striker Bobbie Dale was amongst the goals as the Cheltenham Town loanee’s brace was enough to earn Farnborough their second 3 points of the Season.
Speaking to GetHampshire after Monday’s Home victory, Manager Spencer said: “With the exception of the second half on Saturday, every game has been close. It’s about small margins and we’re catching up.
“It was a good game. Both teams tried to play football but those margins went our way today and we’re ecstatic.
“I’m just delighted to get a win and get that monkey off our back. It’s been a long time coming and we needed it to pick the dressing room up. We’ll enjoy this moment but at the same time not get carried away and take the positives into the trip to Tonbridge Angels on Saturday.”

Opponents, Tonbridge Angels are flying high in 3rd place, with 23 points from 11 games.
Last time out, a first half goal from strike Luke Blewden was enough to see off Lewes as The Angels recorded their seventh victory of the Season.
Speaking after Wednesday’s 1-0 victory at Lewes, Manager Steve McKimm said: “It’s about winning games and getting the points.
“We needed that tonight, especially after that FA Cup disappointment. We go Saturday, we’ve got another tough game against a young energetic side in Farnborough, that have made a couple of experienced signings as well so it’s going to be tough.
“And then we may not have a game for ten days or so. So it’s important that we get a positive result again on Saturday.
“If we play how we can play, I’m quite confident of giving anybody a game. We’re at home, we need to push on and hopefully the crowd will get behind us and [we can] get a result that we need.
Tonbridge Angels last time out: Anthony Di Bernardo (gk), James Folkes, Jack Parter, Lee Carey, Jerome Sobers, Sonny Miles, Mitchell Pinnock, Anthony Riviere, Nathan Elder, Luke Blewden, Nick Wheeler, Charlie Webster, Ellis Brown, Lawrence Ball and Charlie Slocombe.
