Tony Vance happy with Guernsey FC turnaround

Guernsey FC manager Tony Vance says he is pleased with how his squad have turned their fortunes around after a shaky start to life in the Combined Counties Premier Division.

The Green Lions are second having won their last two league games.

They face a Bank Holiday weekend double-header with away trips to Dorking and Horley Town.

"We're quite pleased - we had a little bit of a blip away a couple of weeks ago," Vance told BBC Guernsey.

"But the boys have turned that around and been exceptional in the last two games and got two really good results.

"We're building a little bit of momentum up which is good, but there's a long way to go and we're not getting carried away.

"We've got two tough away fixtures slap bang together and that'll be a real test."

Dorking, who Guernsey play on Saturday, have yet to play a home game having won one of their three away matches.

Horley are a point above them but have yet to win at home.

Guernsey have a full-strength squad for the trip, with goalkeeper Chris Tardif and defenders Simon Geall, Jason Winch and Ollie MacKenzie all back after being unavailable for Tuesday night's win at Cove.

"They both bring different scenarios, but I'm confident we've got enough to get two good results and that's what I'm aiming for," Vance said.

"The Dorking pitch is not the greatest, it's incredibly bumpy, so we're going to have to adapt.

"Whilst it's a game I believe we should win, it's about adapting to the facilities and the surface.

"Horley Town are a good side, they played some good football when we played them in a pre-season game last year and it was an eye-opener into the standard that it was going to be."
