Bostik Premier: Hendon want to put frustrating week behind them at home to Margate

Greens had both of their scheduled matches in the league last week postponed because of the weather
Hendon host fellow play-off hopefuls Margate in the Bostik Premier on Saturday, looking to put a frustrating week behind them.
The Greens were due to visit Leatherhead in the league last Saturday, but saw that game called off because of the cold weather that hit the country last week, with the match now set to take place on April 25 at 7.45pm.
Despite the weather warming up, Gary McCann’s men also had their trip to Lowestoft Town on Tuesday called off with the pitch at Crown Meadow unplayable, with the match now set to take place on April 10, also at 7.45pm.
It means that the Silver Jubilee Park outfit will not have played since a 1-1 draw at home to Lowestoft on February 24 prior to hosting Margate this Saturday.
There will be some change to the lineup this weekend after Hendon confirmed details of some player movements earlier in the week.
Harold Joseph has returned to parent club St Albans City of the National League South after his loan spell ended, having made five appearances for the Greens in his time with the club.
However, McCann will now have Matt Ball available for selection after he returned to Silver Jubilee Park following the end of a two-month loan in the Evo-Stik South Premier with Kings Langley.
Ball could well go straight into the Hendon squad for Saturday’s clash with Margate as the Greens look to give their play-off hopes a boost.
Along with McCann’s men, the Gate are among the sides in the division chasing a top five finish.
Victory for either team this weekend could be crucial come the end of the season, and psychologically too should they meet in the play-offs.
