The Blues continue to be without Scott Donnelly (Knee) and Brett Johnson (Face) while striker Michael Thalassitis (Hamstring) could miss out. Margate have permission to play on-loan Maidstone Midfielder Vas Karagiannis.
Hastings United head to Hartsdown Park with an experienced squad who are expected to compete well this season. Managed by former Gillingham player Darren Hare, Hastings possess former Margate Midfielder Matt Bodkin as well as former Maidstone Striker Jay May, Defender Steven Watt and former Chelsea and Millwall goalkeeper Lenny Pidgeley.
The last time these two sides met at Hartsdown Park was in October 2012 when the two sides played a 1-1 draw in the Ryman Premier League. In the previous five meetings both sides have one win each with the other three occasions ending in a draw.
Victory for Margate would see them progress to the 4th Qualifying Round for the second consecutive year as well as scooping up £7,500 in prize money.
