EDIT: Tuesday evening’s game has now been postponed

Welling United will be hoping to build on Saturday’s success in the FA Trophy when they return to league action with a trip to Farnborough on Tuesday evening (7.45pm).

The Wings returned to winning ways with a 2-0 victory over a youthful Chesterfield side on home turf at the weekend – a victory which may well give Danny Bloor’s men a confidence boost as they continue their fight against the drop in Vanarama National League South.

Jack Burchell made his long-awaited return from injury last time out and may be in contention for a starting berth in Hampshire in midweek,  but Welling could be without Chiori Johnson, who was forced off with injury during the win over the Spireites.

Youngsters David Kamara and Enoch Muwonge impressed at the weekend and will have give Bloor plenty of food for thought as he considers his selection against Farnborough, although Adam Roscrow could well be available again after withdrawing following the warm-up on Saturday.

Welling will monitor Kain Adom’s fitness after the winger missed out in the FA Trophy clash with a minor back complaint.


Farnborough currently occupy 14th position in National League South with nine wins, nine draws and nine defeats from their 27 games played, so far.

Spencer Day’s men have had the benefit of some respite over the last week with no game at the weekend – their last outing resulted in a 2-1 defeat at St Albans on January 6th and they come into the game off the back of back-to-back defeats.

They will be without the suspended Aaron Kuhl following his recent sending off against Havant & Waterlooville.


Welling United were forced to share a point with Farnborough from a 2-2 at the J Hearnden Skip Hire Community Stadium in October.

After taking the lead through Dominic Odusanya, the Wings were pegged back after the break, but looked to have won it late on when sub TJ Bramble hit the net.

However, the visitors rescued a draw moments later to snatch the points from the hosts thanks to Dan Gifford’s goal at the death.


Danny Bloor: “It was a good victory in the FA Trophy [on Saturday] but we can’t get carried away. We have bigger fish to fry trying to do our best in the National League South and we’re looking forward to the trip to Farnborough.”

Farnborough boss, Spencer Day: “Welling are struggling but they’ve got so much pace in the side.  We’ve got a few problems – we have Aaron Kuhl suspended and we’re struggling up top, but ultimately we have to get on with it.

“We’re having a hit and miss season, but we’re sitting slap bang in the middle of the table. It will be key to get a couple of wins so we’re looking up and not the other way.”
