A number of Marc Wardley’s Academy players are set to feature for Farnborough with the chance to impress in Tuesday’s Hampshire derby.
Ahead of the game, Manager, Spencer Day said: “We’ve got to go and do a job at Fleet. I’m going to make no apologies – I need to rest players – it’s right at the bottom level of my responsibilities the League Cup.
“I doubt there will be more than one or two First Team players, if at all playing in that game. I have to be ruthless by resting players and players recovering because we’re playing a lot of games.
“It’s the opportunity for squad players and Academy players – that we’re so proud of our Academy – to play a Fleet side who gave us a really good game here.
“It will be a tough night. We will go and try and win the game.”
