Farnborough travel to The Armadillo Stadium this weekend to take on Arlesey Town in the Evo-Stik League Southern Division One Central.

Farnborough

The Yellows have won their previous three games in the League with victories over Chalfont St Peter (3-1), Uxbridge (3-1) and Aylesbury (1-0) respectively.

Farnborough picked up their 20th League win of the Season last Saturday, beating Aylesbury 1-0 on Home turf courtesy of an Eddie Smith goal.

Boro’ will welcome a new face to the squad this weekend after the Club announced the signing of former Fleet Town striker, Pat Cox.

Speaking on Saturday’s opponents, Manager, Spencer Day said: “They’re a side that, if we give them time and encouragement can really hurt us, away from home.

“The Season is drifting a little bit – I understand why. We’ll need to focus on that away performance. Our Home record is excellent and our Away record is inconsistent.

“We’ll go there and try and be positive. Another difficult away game but if we focus well we’ve got every chance.

“We literally take the cliché; one [game] at a time but keeping an eye perhaps on the bigger picture.”

Farnborough last time out (vs Aylesbury): Aaron Bufton (gk), Josh Huggins, Keith Emmerson, CJ Fearn (Capt), Curtis Osano, Sam Pearce, Jack Barton, Eddie Smith, Perry Coles, Dennis Oli, Nic Ciardini; John Oyenuga, Ethan Allen, Jordan Goater and Jamal Batchilly.
