/ Margate v Tonbridge Angels (Bostik Premier)
The Blues will play their first competitive fixture on their brand new 3G surface under the lights as they welcome Kent rivals Tonbridge Angels with both sides looking for their second wins of the season after opening day wins.
The ‘Gate recorded a 1-0 in away at Thurrock FC whilst tonight’s visitors also won on the opening day with a 1-0 victory over Hendon at Longmead Stadium.
Tonbridge will provide a tough test with the likes of Nathan Elder and Alex Akrofi likely to provide their strongest threat.
Margate could name the same starting eleven as Saturday with Frannie Collin leading the line up with the support of Lee Prescott behind and Dave Martin and Matt Bodkin on the wings.
Margate continue to be without Alex Flisher and Liam Enver-Marum whilst striker Harry Stannard will undergo a fitness test before kick-off to see if he is fit.
Kick off at Hartsdown Park is 7:45pm but as always if you can’t join us then you can follow live on Twitter at @margate_fc.
