The win was revenge for Tony Vance's side after a depleted Guernsey in a performance Vance described as "awful" at the time.

The victory was Guernsey's fifth in a row and six in seven games as their upturn in form in the league continues.

Guernsey had been on the worst run of results in their four-year history, winning only two of 14 league matches between mid-September and mid-December.
