BORO CLIP ROBINS WINGS IN A THRILLER
A SUNNY afternoon as the seasons change saw the Robins migrate east from Frome to take on a Farnborough side pilloried in the press for off-field reasons since their widweek FA Cup replay defeat.
Unfortunately for Frome, for this game their hosts had remembered to bring a keeper to the match.
As they have done of late, from the whistle Farnborough stroked it around nicely, but it took till the half-hour for Boro to draw blood.
Michael Elias-Fernandes picked the ball up on a mazy run, looked up for a pass but seeing no options, deftly placed the ball in off the post from 30 yards.
It took until after the break for the Robins to muster an equaliser, the airborne route producing a header at the far post from Marcus Mapstone that levelled up proceedings.
This incensed Farnborough on the resumption, with EliasFernandes almost immediately finishing crisply from some snappy passing on the edge of the box.
And Brendan Murphy-McVey curled in a third with a quarter of an hour remaining.
Frome grabbed a second goal through Ryan Bath three minutes later but then found their wings clipped as Farnborough held firm to claim a thoroughlydeserved win.
