Farnborough will want to respond quickly from the weekend with a Hampshire derby at Fleet Town on Tuesday evening.
Farnborough are second in the Evo-Stik League Southern Division One Central and currently trail League leaders, Royston Town by eleven points.
So now with the task of securing the highest Play-Off place possible, Boro’ need a reaction from Saturday’s 0-3 Home defeat to Marlow.
A first Home League defeat of 2017 was inflicted on Farnborough at the weekend in a game which saw Oxford United loanee, Jordan Graham make his Boro’ debut off the bench.
Striker, Pat Cox is awaiting his first Farnborough goal, having made two League appearances since signing from our upcoming opponents, Fleet Town.
Speaking ahead of Tuesday’s derby, Manager, Spencer Day said: “I’ve got a lot of credit for their [Fleet Town’s] Manager and players that are owed money and carry on playing.
“They’ve got a fantastic spirit and some of that spirit’s got to rub off here because we’ve got some very, very good players here and I don’t want to hit a panic button on one defeat.
“They’re showing all the heart and qualities that we’re not at the moment. We’ve dragged out results, we’ve been on a great run, its ended badly and now it’s all about the reaction. It’s a derby. We hope the fans get there and it’s just another game.”
