The Blues overcome the Swans 3-0 last Saturday at Wheatsheaf Park in the Trophy but now meet in the Bostik Premier League with Margate looking to put a frustrating October behind them.
The ‘Gate conceded an 85th minute equaliser against Met Police on Tuesday evening as they remained 14th in the Bostik Premier League table after no league win October.
Tomorrows visitors will undoubtedly be out for revenge for last weekend’s defeat but their league form suggests Margate will be in for a much tougher fixture with the Swans sitting 4th in the division just seven points off top spot.
The visitors have been the most clinical in the league so far this season having scored 36 goals in 15 games, making last week’s 3-0 win even more impressive. The ‘Gate will have to be wary of former striker Elliott Buchanan who continues to lead the Staines goal scoring charts.
Manager Steve Watt will be without David Martin who serves a one game ban after collecting five yellow cards so far this term but the boss will be able to call upon Captain James Rogers after he served his one game ban during Tuesday night’s 1-1 draw with the Met Police.
Kick off at Hartsdown Park is 3pm but as always if you can’t be there then you can stay right up to date on the clubs official Twitter feed at @margate_fc from 2:15pm.
