It’s 2nd vs 3rd in the Evo-Stik League Southern Division One Central this Saturday as Farnborough host Kempston Rovers at The Rushmoor Community Stadium.

Manager, Spencer Day added to his squad following the departure of Terrell Forbes with Sam Pearce (loan), Charlie Allen and Ollie Treacher all making a welcome return to the Club.
This weekend the Yellows can welcome back goalkeeper, Aaron Bufton and defender, Curtis Osano after both served respective one match suspensions.
Speaking ahead of Saturday’s crucial clash, Boro’ boss, Spencer Day said: “There is no doubt this is a challenging part of the Season for us on the pitch.
“After a fantastic start to the Season where we were so tight at the back and free scoring upfront we had a serious blip in form combined with a terrible injury list and unavailabilities.
“We have a great dressing room that is determined to turn the last few weeks around and there is no bigger challenge than facing today’s opponents who rightly sit at the top of the table amongst
“We had a great start but now a serious blip and it’s time to get back to winning ways. Saturday is probably our most serious test yet so please get behind us and we can get the vital three points.”
