The two side meet at Farrows Field on the High Street on Saturday but Farnborough do have four games in hand.

A club statement said: “Byron Beard has relinquished the position as first team manager with immediate effect.  We would like to thank Byron for his efforts and wish him well in future endeavours.

“Alex Barnes has stepped in to manage the team on a temporary basis. 

“We are inviting applications for the posts of manager and assistant manager.”
