/ Margate v Brightlingsea Regent
The ‘Gate will be eager to get back on the pitch after Saturdays fixture away at Kingstonian fell foul to the freezing weather meaning they haven’t played a league game since their 3-2 win over Hendon on the 9th December.
Brightlingsea Regent are enjoying their first season in the Bostik Premier League after winning promotion last season and currently sit 12th in the division after an impressive 2-2 draw against high flying Staines on Saturday despite being 2-0 down.
Margate are still without Lenny Pidgeley who has been given compassionate leave while Chris Sessegnon remains side-lined with a knee injury.
Three points for Margate tonight would see them climb to 7th in the division but just one point off the play-off places depending on other results in the division. It will be the ‘Gate’s 20th league match of the season which will mean they have four games in hand over some of their nearest competitors.
Kick off at Hartsdown Park is 7:45pm but as always if you can’t be there then you can stay right up to date on the clubs official Twitter feed @margate_fc from 7:15pm.
