The Blues could announce one new signing before the game at the Beveree otherwise they will head to Hampton with the same squad at Bath minus the two loanee’s who have returned to their parent clubs, however they will be boosted by the return of Midfielder Ryan Richefond after he served a one game suspension in the defeat to Bath City.
After 13 successive league defeats, time and games are running out for the Gate as they remain rooted to the bottom of the National League South table, eight points adrift of safety, however with games in hand on those above them, three points on Saturday will give the Blues fans hope that they can stay in this division.
Hampton & Richmond come into this fixture on the back of a 2-2 draw against struggling Gosport Borough on Tuesday night which saw them rise to eighth in the League table and close the gap on the play-off places.
Manager Alan Dowson has led the Beavers to a successful first season back in the National League South after promotion last season. The hosts are likely to include former Gate Striker Christian Jolley who joined the Beavers in the summer after his release from Margate.
Last time the Gate visited the Beveree Stadium was 2014 in the Ryman Premier League when they suffered a 2-0 defeat.
Kick off at The Beveree Stadium is 3pm but as always if you can’t be there we will have live updates on the clubs official Twitter feed @margate_fc from 2pm.
