Enfield Town (A) - 25th February 2023
Margate travel to North London to face Enfield Town on Saturday afternoon looking to build momentum after securing their place in the last four of the DFDS Kent Senior Cup on Tuesday evening.
Manager Reece Prestedge will be able to call upon two new signings if he wishes after the club secured the services of Yaser Kasim and Ruben Soares-Junior on Friday.
Two players Prestedge definitely won’t be able to call upon are midfielders Sam Blackman and Emmanuel Oke who are both suspended.
Despite Tuesday evening’s cup success, the Blues will be looking to pick up some Isthmian league points after suffering two consecutive 1-0 home defeats either side of a 1-1 draw away at Herne Bay. Despite their indifferent form, the Blues still remain nine points clear of the drop zone with 12 league games remaining.
In stark contrast, Enfield still remain hopeful of clinching a play-off place this season despite suffering back to back defeats recently. The Town suffered a 3-0 away defeat to Folkestone midweek just days after a 3-0 defeat away at Canvey Island. Although they remain 4th in the league standings, the North London side will be aware that they have just two wins from their last six in all competitions.
Margate fans won’t need reminding that they suffered a heavy 5-2 home loss to Enfield earlier this season, despite matching their visitors for the first 60 minutes.
Historically Margate do not enjoy visiting the Queen Elizabeth Stadium having only collected one point from their last six visits, which was picked up in a 1-1 draw back in 2013.
Kick-off at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium is 3pm, but as always if you can’t be there then you can stay right up to date on our Twitter feed @margate_fc from 2:30pm.
