Blues Beat Lowestoft To Extend Unbeaten Run

Margate extended their unbeaten run in the Bostik Premier League with a tight 1-0 win over Lowestoft Town at Hartsdown Park.  

The ‘Gate announced loan signing George Essuman from Dover Athletic in the morning and he made his debut in place of the injured Ben Swift.  

The hosts started quickest with in-form striker Jordan Chiedozie who forced the visitor’s keeper into an early save as the Blues looked to take an early advantage.  

The ‘Gate looked to break the deadlock again as Aaron Simpson and then Frannie Collin both saw efforts go wide.  

Margate continued in the second half to nullify the Lowestoft threat and took the lead as Chiedozie notched his 30th goal in all competitions as he nodded home a hanging David Martin cross to make it 1-0.  

A goal mouth scrambled ensued moments later as Chiedozie saw his initial header well saved before Essuman and substitute Sam Blackman all seeing efforts fantastically blocked.  

The visitor’s keeper again come to the rescue as Martin again delivered a wonderful cross for Collin whose header was superbly tipped away to keep the score at 1-0.  

Lowestoft rarely threatened but the Blues had to stay alert but they saw out the 90 minutes to record another win which keeps the Gate 3rd in the Bostik Premier League.
