The first shot on target fell to Margate with Karagiannis' free kick testing Rice in the Gosport Borough goal early on. Thalassitis hit the post shortly after, the resulting rebound found it's way to Karagiannis once again, however his slot was blocked well and eventually Gosport were able to clear.
Gosport substitute Warren Bentley then went close to providing the winner, he found Wright but his effort went wide. However his next chance was to prove desisive, Dawson slipped the ball across the six yard box and Wright was there to tap in the finish to give the hosts the lead.
Bentley could've put the icing on the cake for Gosport, however his shot could only find the bar this time and the hosts held on to secure all three points.
Margate are next in action next Saturday (01/10/16) as we host Hastings United in the Emirates FA Cup Third Qualifying Round.
