ROSS ALLEN will reach 100 games tonight as Guernsey FC look to fire their Ryman South campaign back on track against the league’s leakiest defence.

The Green Lions travel to bottom-of-the-table Eastbourne Town for their 20th game of the season, with Tony Vance’s men looking to turn around their recent poor run of form.

After the weekend’s postponement with Sittingbourne saw them drop out of the top five, they also know a win tonight will take them back into the play-off spots.

However, despite conceding 46 goals already, Eastbourne picked up a surprise 3-2 win at Hythe Town on Saturday, with GFC manager Vance wary of the threat.

As is the norm for midweek away games, he has a glut of names missing, including Sam Cochrane, Chris Tardif, Ryan-Zico Black, Glyn Dyer, Dave Rihoy and Tom de la Mare.

It could mean a debut for teenager Danny Hale, the exciting 17-year-old forward included in a GFC squad for the first time, along with fellow youngsters Tom Martin and Paris Pereira.

Tonight’s match kicks off at 7.45pm, with live updates on our Twitter feed @GsyPressSport.
