After over a week's break since their 2-1 away defeat to Redditch United in the League Cup, Dean Clarke and his side will be eager to return to winning ways.

Stevie Williams' pre-match thoughts

Speaking ahead of the fixture, Williams said;

"It’s vital we prepare well and start the game fast. The squad is building, getting stronger and players are aware of what is expected of them.

"Farnborough sit 3rd and are always a strong opposition to face. We have shown on times in previous games that we are a good team and we can score goals. We are still building but we genuinely believe as coaching staff we can compete and the players we feel are starting to believe it. "
