Farnborough aim to bounce back from defeat at the weekend with a trip to the Kingsmeadow Stadium to take on play-off chasing Kingstonian in the Ryman League Premier Division, kick off 7:45pm.
Farnborough’s five game unbeaten run came to an abrupt halt on Saturday afternoon, going down 0-3 at Home to League leaders, Hampton & Richmond Borough.
That defeat, combined with a win for 20th placed Needham Market left Farnborough seven points from safety, with just four games to play.
With 12 precious points to play for, Spencer Day’s side will need to re-discover the recent form which saw Boro’ record three consecutive wins on the road.
Farnborough will have to make do without midfield duo, Merrick James-Lewis through injury and Jack Battie who is serving the last of a two game suspension.
Speaking ahead of the run-in, Manager Spencer Day said: “Our form and spirit are excellent and we will need every ounce of that but it will certainly be an exciting and extremely challenging last two weeks of the season.
“The two or three experience lads we added a couple of months ago have made a big difference but I’m particularly proud of our youngsters that continue to perform particularly well.
“We must rise against the odds again and give it everything in these last week games to try and pull off the great escape that no one gave us a chance of at the turn of the year.”
