Potters Bar Town (H) - 2nd April 2022
Margate welcome Potters Bar Town to Hartsdown Park on Saturday afternoon in the Isthmian Premier Division, looking to put back to back defeats in the league behind them.
A 4-1 defeat at Bognor Regis Town was followed up on Tuesday by a 2-0 defeat at Lewes, as the Blues only have one win in their previous five league games.
Manager Jay Saunders is hoping to be able to call upon his first choice centre-half partnership of Ben Swift and Lewis Knight, which was again disrupted again on Tuesday evening, with Knight falling ill.
Potters Bar head to Hartsdown Park in somewhat resurgent form since the appointment of new Manager Sammy Moore in February. Despite their recent upturn in results, the ‘Scholars’ head to Kent having suffered a 1-0 defeat at relegation threatened East Thurrock on Tuesday evening.
In a somewhat bizarre situation, these two sides only met for the first time this season two weeks ago as Moore’s side ran out 2-0 winners. The last time these two side met at Hartsdown Park was November 2019 when the two sides shared a 2-2 draw, with Margate goals being scored by Noel Leighton and Elliot Reeves.
Margate will host a fun day to celebrate its 125 year anniversary, therefore the turnstiles will open at 12:30pm with free activities taking place before the game, and also a half-time crossbar challenge.
Kick-off at Hartsdown Park is 3pm, but as always if you can’t join us then you can stay right up to date on our official Twitter feed @margate_fc from 2:30pm.
