Folkestone Invicta (A) - 19th September 2023

By Josh Cole

Margate will travel to Folkestone Invicta for the Second Qualifying Round replay in the FA Cup at The Alcaline Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Margate played out an entertaining 2-2 draw where a last-gasp equaliser from Antonis Vasiliou forced both teams to battle it out again in the heated Kent Derby. You can read the full match report by clicking here.

Manager Reece Prestedge saw the game as a “missed opportunity” after having a man advantage for 30 minutes of the second half. Watch his full interview on Gatetv by clicking here.

This will be the third time this season that the ‘Gate and Invicta have faced each other with Folkestone having the upper hand with one win and a draw. Both teams will have one eye on the tie knowing that the winners will face Chesham United away in the Third Qualifying Round of the competition.

The Alcaline Stadium hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for the Blues recently only having recorded just one win there since 2014, coming back in April 2022, when the ‘Gate won 1-0.

Tuesday night will see Daniel Baines referee the game, whilst he will be assisted by linesmen Stuart Beadle and Leigh Ballinger.
