Looking to pick up where they left off in the League Farnborough make the trip to Cambridgeshire this weekend to take on bottom side, Histon.
Spencer Day’s side, who moved up to 2nd place following a 4-0 win last time out in the League, are in good form having won 4 of their opening 5 competitive games.
Boro’ booked their place in the 1st Round Qualifying of the FA Cup last weekend with a comfortable 5-1 Home win over Longlevens.
Opening their accounts for the Season in the FA Cup for Boro’ were Jack Barton, CJ Fearn (Penalty), Curtis Osano, Dennis Oli and Jamie Cureton (Penalty).
French striker, Habib Cissoko also made his Boro’ debut as a substitute last weekend having received International clearance.
In the week Academy starlet, Jordan Goater joined fellow team-mate Ethan Allen at Combined Counties League Premier Division side, Badshot Lea on loan.
Speaking on Saturday’s trip to Cambridgeshire, Manager Spencer Day said: “They’re [Histon] a very young side. Full of third year scholars, so technically very good.
“It’s another away game – we’ve had an excellent away run in the last six months with the exception of Petersfield. We’re looking forward to it. It’s a bubbly dressing room.
“Histon will be a tough away game – they all are. It’s probably our furthest away journey but we’ll look forward to it. We’re buzzing as a Club, also knowing we’ve got a lot more still to give.”
