TONY VANCE admits he is glad his Guernsey FC side have already got points in the bag as they face a tough Ryman South run-in – and with safety not yet assured.

Starting tomorrow afternoon at Footes Lane (2pm) against fifth-placed Carshalton Athletic, the Green Lions face sides still right in the promotion hunt in four of their final five fixtures.

But with their victory at Chatham Town last week lifting them 11 points clear of that very side directly below the relegation line, Vance and his players can breathe a bit easier now.

The GFC manager says he will not be totally satisfied until safety is mathematically confirmed – but also insists that panic never set in.

‘I don’t really think there has ever been any tension at all about the situation to be honest, it is a challenge I have really enjoyed and one I think the players have too,’ said Vance.
