Kick off 7:45pm
Margate welcome play-off chasing Enfield Town to Hartsdown Park on Tuesday evening in the Isthmian Premier League looking to make it three wins in a row for the first time since September after their 4-2 win over Haringey Borough on Saturday.
Goals from Ben Swift, Kadell Daniel, Elliot Reeves and Kieran Monlouis ensured the points for Jay Saunders side and they will be looking to continue that on Tuesday night against Enfield who fell to a late defeat at home to Cray Wanderers on Saturday.
The ‘Towners’ were the early pace setters in the league at the start of the season mostly thanks to a strike partnership of Billy Bricknell and Muhammadu Faal, however the latter has since left to join League One side Bolton Wanderers and now Andy Leese’s side have just two wins in their last five games and have slipped outside of the play-off places and currently sit 8th in the league table.
Margate Manager Jay Saunders could welcome back Dan Johnson in defence after he missed Saturdays win and there could be a jig around at the back with Chris Sessegnon needing to be assessed before the game after leaving the game early on Saturday with an injury. Enfield have midfielder Ryan Blackman available after he was sent off on Saturday as his two match ban doesn’t kick in until Saturday, whilst Blues fans might spot a couple of familiar names on the Enfield Town team sheet with former Blues defender Glenn Wilson currently registered with the club and former Striker Kezie Ibe who had a short spell at Hartsdown Park in 2012/13.
This will be the first time these two sides meet this season, however in their last four meetings Enfield have won twice, Margate once and one draw with the last fixture at Hartsdown Park ending with a 2-1 for the ‘Gate in October 2019 thanks to a brace from former striker Joe Taylor.
Kick off at Hartsdown Park is 7:45pm with gates opening at 6:30pm.
