Match Information: Dunstable Town vs Farnborough
Evo-Stik League South Premier
Saturday 7 October 2017
We return to league action this Saturday with an away trip to Dunstable on a special day across non-league football.
Last time out on the road was a disappointing one for Farnborough which saw a 3-0 defeat against Biggleswade Town. The side will be hoping to bounce back after an impressive performance and win against Division One high flyers Hartley Wintney in the BigFreeBet.com League Cup during midweek.
Prior to the Biggleswade Town defeat Farnborough were on positive form, having not been beaten in 5 across all competitions.
Dunstable Town find themselves at the foot of the Southern Premier league table, having only picked up 1 point in their opening 9 league games. Having only scored 3 goals and conceding the leagues highest with 37, they will be hoping to kick start their season on this crowd boosting day.
The two sides have never met in the league and a win for Farnborough, dependant on other results, could see a rise to as high as 10th. With only one side being relegated from the Southern Premier League this season, a win for Dunstable Town this weekend could see them rise above Gosport Borough who also find themselves with just the 1 point this season.
Dunstable Town, like Farnborough, did pick up victory in midweek. John Sonuga put Dunstable Town ahead but AFC Dunstable equalised during the second half in the battle of the Dunstable’s. Dunstable Town went on to win 3-1 in the shootout to secure their first competitive win of the season and to secure their place in round 2 of the competition.
Last season Dunstable finished in 16th place in the Southern Premier League and will be looking to improve their current form to remain in the Premier Division for their 4th consecutive season following their promotion from Division One in 2013/2014 season.
Referee: Daniel Hanna (Oundle)
Assistant Referee’s: Sarah Grundy (Market Deeping) and Shaun Gregory (Hampton Hargate).
About Non-League Day
Non-League Day started back in 2010 to help promote non-league clubs boost their gate receipts during the international break, which see’s the Premier League and EFL Championship have the weekend off.
This weekend, the day is back for the eighth consecutive season and is featured on a Saturday which see’s none of the home nations competing. Although we may not be featuring at home, we encourage supporters to make the journey to raise the support on the road for Boro, as well as boost the gate receipt for fan-run club Dunstable Town.
