Lowestoft Town will look to bounce back from a damaging midweek loss when they take on Margate this afternoon.

Having ground out a crucial 1-0 victory at home to Merstham last weekend, the Trawlerboys returned from Thurrock empty-handed on Tuesday night, leaving them 15th in the Bostik League Premier Division.

Margate currently sit 9th in the league, with their last match also seeing them take three points against Merstham.

Striker Matthew Foy will be available for selection after joining Lowestoft on a one-month loan deal from Cambridge United yesterday, becoming manager Dale Brooks’ first signing.

His side will, however, be without Jacek Zielonka through suspension, but Adam Smith may return after missing the match at Thurrock.

This afternoon’s clash at Crown Meadow will kick off at 3pm.

The gates, bar and burger van open at 1.30pm and there will be coverage of the win over Merstham available to watch in the club house.
