Margate battled for a valuable point away at Enfield Town on Saturday afternoon as they drew 0-0 at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium.

Reece Prestedge made changes from Tuesday evening’s cup success as Phil Roberts returned to the starting eleven to partner Harvey Smith in attack, whilst new signings Yaser Kasim and Ruben Soares-Junior were named on the bench.

In blustery conditions in North London, it was the hosts with the wind behind them that started the game with more intent, winning several corners which were dealt with each time by the excellent Daniel Jinadu in goal, alongside the defensive unit who dealt with the corners and early long throws into the Margate box.

Jinadu was called into action on 28 minutes as he superbly denied Lyle Della-Verde with a fine save as the scores remained level. Some further heroic defending from Peter Ojemen frustrated the hosts as the two sides went in at the break all level.

With the wind in their favour in the second half, Margate showed some attacking threat in the early parts of the half with Ben Greenhalgh delivering some perfect set piece deliveries which were being dealt with by the strong Enfield back-line.

Heading into the final ten minutes, Prestedge introduced Soares-Junior, however it was another recent signing Sinn’Kaye Christie who superbly blocked an effort to deny the hosts another opportunity.

Kasim was introduced in the final moments as the officials added six added minutes, however there was no way through for the hosts as Margate secured a point on the road to move them ten points clear of the drop zone.
