The Peacocks will be seeking their first Vanarama National League South victory in five games when they welcome Farnborough to the Somerset Campervan Company Stadium tomorrow afternoon (4th November), ko 3.00pm.

Town ended the month of September by beating Eastbourne Borough at home before October arrived which proved a testing month, the Peacocks accruing only two points from their four fixtures. A maximum return tomorrow would be an ideal response against the Hampshire side who experienced the opposite last month. After losing to Weston-super-Mare on the same day as Town defeated Eastbourne, the Yellows have gone on a five game unbeaten run, with away points collected at Welling and Maidstone to accompany three home wins over St Albans, Tonbridge Angels and Dover. This run of form has lifted them up to 4th in the table and although they have an identical playing record to Town, they sit three places higher due to a superior goal difference. The latter two victories have seen Farnborough net four times in each to help them maintain their unbeaten record at home in the league this season. On the road it is a different matter though as they remain one of only two sides in the division without an away win in 2023-24.

Farnborough are familiar faces to the Peacocks, having accompanied them into the National League South after winning the Southern League Play-Offs in 2021-22. They secured the double over Town last season and have retained a number of personnel from then but have also strengthened with the recent loan signings of striker Connor Hall from Solihull Moors, midfielder Aaron Kuhl from Dorking Wanderers and defender Edon Pruti from Hartlepool United.

The Town squad is reinforced by the return of Joe Guest who has not featured since getting a knock at Dover last month while long-term absentee and loanee from Yeovil Town Malachi Linton is also included for the first time since being injured at Aveley in the second game of the season. Head of Football Rob Dray remarked:” We’re back at home against the in-form side in the league. We know each other inside out and realise what a great job Spencer has done over the years at Farnborough, so we know what’s in front of us. Whoever turns up in the right way on the day will win the game and we must make sure that is us. Taking our chances when they come our way is crucial at this level so we have to be better than our last few games.”

Following recent rain and with more forecast early tomorrow morning there will be a precautionary pitch inspection at 9.00am.
