TALISMAN Nick Barton will return as Guernsey target a second successive away victory in National Three London & South-East tomorrow.

The influential No. 8 missed last week’s 39-29 win at Bury St Edmunds, but he came through training on Tuesday and head coach Jordan Reynolds has named him in the side to face Westcombe Park as the green-and-whites look to build some momentum.

‘We have got to have one performance like that one last week and then continue on from that in the next game,’ Reynolds said.

‘Getting consistency is so vital in a tight league like this.

‘We are ninth at the moment on 15 points, but the three teams around us all have 15 and one win could put us up into the top six.

‘That would be brilliant and it shows that you just don’t know what will happen in this league from one week to the next.’

Guernsey team

Sharrott, Ceillam, Craine, Hillier, Regnard, Thomas, Le Cocq, Barton, Rutledge, Campbell, J. Batiste, McDougall, Taylor, Whitehead, Ball. Replacements: L. Batiste, Hobbs, Choules.
