Guernsey FC boss Tony Vance says his side made it easy for Hastings United to thrash them 6-1.

The loss extended the Green Lions poor away form - they have not won away from home since last December.

After conceding an early opener Guernsey were 2-0 down just before half-time and went a further goal behind nine minutes after the re-start.

Guernsey's Simon Geall was sent off to add to their woes as they let in three more before a Ryan-Zico Black goal.

"I don't think they were six goals better than us, I think we made it very easy for them to win 6-1, they haven't earned their goals, we've given them to them," Vance told BBC Radio Guernsey.

"It's not a side a side I'm fearful of, but I'm fearful of us at the moment because we're a little bit weak.

"We haven't got people fighting for shirts, it's credit to the lads that keep turning up week in, week out away from home and to training because they're real warriors and they'll keep going.

"But here we fell very short and it's one of those days you want to forget and go home," added Vance after the match.

The defeat sees Guernsey drop to 21st in Isthmian League Division One South.
