Kinnear searches for firepower
|Margate travel to Sussex for their
third away trip of the campaign when they visit Worthing tomorrow. Due to
international matches the same day, this game will kick-off at 1pm, writes
So for Margate so far this season, it’s a case of defensively sound, but lacking up front. A return of two goals conceded has please manager Chris Kinnear, but he has clearly signalled his intent to bring reinforcements – particularly in attack.
Kinnear told www.margate-fc.com : “Defensively we look as good as anybody in this league. It’s just a matter now of finishing and scoring.
"If we can get another couple of players up front to support Leon, we can hopefully score a few goals, because that’s all that is missing from our game.
Leon Braithwaite – unavailable for the Redbridge game due to work commitments - should be back to face Worthing. Darren Watson could be the man to make-way for Braithwaite in the starting eleven. Pat Gradley who is returning from injury, might have to make do with a place on the bench.
After a mid-table finish last season, the Rebels have started the new season brightly. Two wins, a draw and one defeat represent the story of Worthing’s season to date. Most pleasing so far for the Sussex side was their 2-0 defeat of Braintree. Last season, the rebels suffered a pair of 3-0 reverses to the Iron.
One for the Gate defence to watch closely is Stafford Browne. The Worthing hit-man has so far scored four times in the season.
