Potters Bar Town (A) - 15th March 2022
Margate travel to Hertfordshire on Tuesday evening to face Potters Bar Town, as they look to return to winning ways in the Isthmian Premier Division.
The Blues lost for the first time on Saturday for the first time in eleven games, as they were beaten 2-0 by runaway Isthmian Premier Division leaders Worthing.
The ‘Gate make the journey for the second time after their original trip in January was postponed upon arrival, due to adverse weather conditions.
Margate have injury concerns still over Lewis Knight, Joe Anderson and James Bessey-Saldanha, meanwhile they hope Harrison Hatfull will recover from a sickness bug in time to feature.
Defender and Captain Ben Swift will be available, despite his red card on Saturday as his three game ban doesn’t kick in until Saturday’s home fixture against Harinhey Borough.
‘The Scholars’, as they are otherwise known have seen an improvement in form since the appointment of Manager Sammy Moore. Since taking charge on 1st February, the club have only lost three times in ten games which has seen them rise to 12th place, and away from the Isthmian Premier Division danger zone.
Potters Bar recorded a 3-2 away win at Carshalton Athletic on Saturday.
Due to COVID, the last meeting between these two sides came in November 2019 as the pair shared a 2-2 draw at Hartsdown Park. The last time the two sides met at the now named ‘LA Construction Stadium’ was December 2018, as Margate picked up three points thanks to a George Brown effort and a Frannie Collin strike in a 2-1 win for the Blues.
Kick-off at the ‘LA Construction Stadium’ is 7:45pm, but as always if you can’t make it then you can stay right up to date at the clubs official Twitter feed @margate_fc from 7:30pm.
