This Saturday, 8th placed Leiston visit The Rushmoor Community Stadium in the Ryman League Premier Division, kick off 3pm.
Farnborough are now ten points adrift of safety, following a disappointing 0-2 Home defeat to Billericay Town at the beginning of the week.
Spencer Day’s side remain in 23rd place in the Ryman League Premier Division, with 24 points from 33 games.
Leiston won the reverse fixture 4-2 at Victory Road back in October, with Perry Ryan (Penalty) and Dean Joseph-Whittingham netting for Boro’.
Speaking ahead of Saturday’s Home game, Manager Spencer Day told GetHampshire: “We have to win on Saturday, it’s as simple as that.
“I think we’ve got to get three or four points in the next two games or we need to make a decision and consider whether we are better off preparing for next season.
“It’s very frustrating after such a good performance on Saturday. We had too many people who thought we’d cracked it on Saturday and it showed.
“Too many players under-performed. We were sloppy, didn’t pass the ball very well and got bullied. It’s the old cliché of two steps forward, three steps back.
“We warned the players before that it was important we reacted from Saturday’s positivity but we didn’t do it. I feel let down tonight.”
