Guernsey FC manager Tony Vance has praised his squad after their 5-1 victory at Walton Casuals.

Ross Allen hit a hat-trick, while Josh Steel scored an impressive volley and Alex Le Prevost also scored, as the Green Lions ended a run of five away games without a win.

"We had 13 players and lots of people unavailable, so I was half expecting us to struggle," said Vance.

"But it was quite the opposite, I thought we were outstanding."

Guernsey's management team has questioned the commitment of the side in recent weeks, with the club struggling to get squads together for away matches.

"It's a credit to the 13 lads that have given the commitment to be here and they've really worked hard to get a fantastic result and performance," Vance told BBC Radio Guernsey.

"Credit to the boys who were here today, they deserve their shirts and deserve their three points and those back home have been shown they're ready for the fight and to keep this going.

"Can we do this game-on-game? I'm not sure and that's why I throw doubts out there. We've had two wins on the bounce and so far this year the levels of performance and consistency have not been good enough."
