Margate's Tom Wynter full of confidence ahead of play-off push in Bostik Premier

By Matthew Panting

Defender Tom Wynter believes Margate’s point at Billericay can reignite their play-off push.

Three defeats over the festive period dented Gate’s top five ambitions in Bostik Premier.

But they nearly caused an upset at champions-elect Billericay, and Wynter is looking forward to a run of five home games – starting against Needham Market on Tuesday night.

“We’ve got our confidence back now,” said Wynter. “We’ve shipped a few goals so it’s nice that we were back on it at Billericay and hopefully we can kick on from there.

“We’ve got to take each game as it comes and pick up as many points as we can to push towards the play-offs again.

“After the run we’ve been on in the last three games to get back to how we were was better.

"They put a lot of bodies forward, at one point I looked around and they had six up top!

“We’re glad to get a point on the board instead of conceding goals the way we have done in the last few games.”

Margate’s resources were fully stretched at Billericay with Jack Evans filling in at right-back and Wynter himself playing at left-back, having spent much of the campaign in a more central role.

“I don’t mind where I play, left-back or centre-half, as long as I play that’s all that matters to me,” said Wynter.

“It’s one of those things. We’ve got quite a few injuries and people missing. We’re down to the bare bones.

“But if we’re on our game no matter who plays in the back four then we’ve got personnel that can cover in every position.”
