Guernsey FC have not conceded a league goal at Footes Lane

Guernsey FC boss Tony Vance has praised his defence as his side is still yet to concede their first home goal.

Out of the 959 teams at Guernsey's level or above in English football, the Green Lions are the only ones to have kept a clean sheet in every home league game this season.

"It's a credit to the defenders and the goalkeepers," Vance told BBC Guernsey.

"We play a very offensive style too so that makes me proud because I'm quite attack minded."

Guernsey are 11 points clear at the top of the Combined Counties League Division One having won 15 of the 17 games they have played.

The only goal the island side have conceded at Footes Lane came against CCL Premier Division side Ash Utd in a cup match which they won 4-1.

"Although you've got to score goals to win football matches, it's vital in defence you don't let things slip," Vance added.
