Tooting & Mitcham v Margate
Margate make the trip to Tooting & Mitcham this evening (Tuesday) looking to close the gap on the top five in the Bostik Premier League.
Saturdays 2-0 win away at Lowestoft Town saw the Blues close the gap on the top five to just five points although the ‘Gate do have two games in hand on teams around them.
The Blues are able to welcome back Jack Evans to the side after he served a one game suspension in the win over Lowestoft for collecting five yellow cards but Lee Prescott could keep his place after impressing.
Chris Sessegnon is likely to still be missing with a knee injury although Tom Wynter could return to the side after being named a substitute last week after injuring his hamstring at Merstham two weeks ago.
Tooting & Mitcham have endured a difficult start to the season and find themselves 21st in the division with the worst goal difference, however they will be buoyed by the fact that they earnt a fine 3-2 victory over Kingstonian on Saturday.
The Blues will consider Tooting & Mitcham as their bogey side having never won away against them, even in the season the hosts were relegated having collected one point in their final 13 games, which came against Margate in a 1-1 draw.
Kick-off 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.
