Easter Monday sees us head to the Robert Parker Stadium to face Ashford Town in Farnborough’s final Away game of the Season.
Boro’ currently remain thirteen points clear of third placed Barton Rovers in the League table with just two more games to go before the Play-Offs commence.
A goal in each half from Charlie Allen and Jamie Cureton saw The Yellows seal a fifteenth Home League win of the Season with a 2-1 victory over Histon.
Farnborough’s Away form in the League currently stands at: won 12, drawn 3 and lost 5.
Speaking on Bank Holiday Monday’s opponents, Manager, Spencer Day said: “We didn’t play well against Ashford at Home. I think their position in the League table quite sums it up – they’re quite hit and miss.
“They thumped Kempston after we played them last week, 3-1. They can be very good and I think it’s fair to say; when you’re sitting mid-table they can have their off-days.
On his team, Day added: “It’s difficult to keep them motivated, we’re doing it. We’re on a great run. However, it is trying to keep everybody fit and in-form – it’s not easy.
“We’ll go there and try and be positive and win the game. It’s a big game for them. We know we’ve got a coach of fans going, it’s Bank Holiday, we’re on a great run and we want to keep winning.
“We just want to keep the momentum going, whilst keeping everybody fit.”
Jamie Cureton scored the winner last time out with his ninth Farnborough goal
Ben Murray’s side are positioned 12th in the Evo-Stik League Southern Division One Central, currently on 53 points from 40 games.
Ashford Town had to come from behind twice to snatch a point in a 2-2 draw with Aylesbury on Saturday, thanks to goals from Mark Bitmead and Max Herbert.
The Tangerines took the lead in the League meeting at the start of the year through a Kamaron English strike but Farnborough recovered to win 2-1 at The Rushmoor Community Stadium.
