Herne Bay (A) - 14th February 2023
Margate make the short trip down the Thanet Way on Tuesday evening as they face Herne Bay in the Isthmian Premier Division.
The ‘Gate will be looking to bounce back from their slender 1-0 defeat against the league leaders Bishop’s Stortford on Saturday, meanwhile the Bay will be looking to build on their 2-1 away win at Brightlingsea Regent.
Manager Reece Prestedge is still without Ade Cole (ankle), whilst there are some doubts over Sam Blackman (calf).
A 4-0 home win at Hartsdown Park back in September will mean the ‘Gate go into this game in confident mood. Prior to Saturday’s defeat, Margate had been in resurgent form having gone four games unbeaten. Tuesday’s hosts themselves have also seen a resurgence having won three out of their last five games.
Margate fans will notice some familiar faces in the Herne Bay squad with Dan Johnson, Marcel Barrington, Connor Dymond, Jack Sammoutis and Troy Howard all now featuring for Herne Bay.
A win for Margate could move them 12 points clear of the Isthmian League drop zone, whereas a win for the hosts would move them to within nine points behind Margate with two games in hand.
Kick-off is 7:45pm, but if you can’t be there then you can stay right up to date on our official Twitter feed @margate_fc from 7:15pm
