With relegation looming large Manager Steve Watt has this week brought in three players to try and stave off the relegation threat as well as looking ahead to next season with the additions of Stephane Ngamvoulou from Oxford City and free agent Luis Cumbers as well as the loan signing of Dave Martin from Bromley for the rest of the campaign.
Eastbourne will settle for their mid-table finish but will look to add to Tuesday evening’s convincing win over Welling United. Margate fans will recognise former Gate Striker Jamie Taylor in the Borough ranks as they look for a league double over the Gate.
When these two sides met at Priory Lane it was the hosts that ran out 2-1 winners with Margate’s goal being scored by recently departed Keanu Williams.
Margate currently sit 13 points from safety and know they must win to try and ignite their survival bid with just seven games to go of the season.
Kick off at Hartsdown Park is 3pm with gates open from 1:30pm but as always if you can’t join us then you can stay right up to date on the clubs official Twitter feed @margate_fc with team news at 2pm.
