Fazakerley is sidelined

GUERNSEY FC will attempt to break their home duck this afternoon – but will have to do so without the wonder-goal hero of their win at Chipstead as well as their talisman.

Will Fazakerley suffered a knee injury in training this week and is awaiting a scan while Ross Allen is still building up his fitness after a bout of illness.

On a positive note, though, the Green Lions welcome back Jacob Fallaize and Keiran Mahon for the visit of sixth-placed Westfield.

‘It kind of sums up our season at the moment,’ said GFC manager Tony Vance.

‘Everyone was really proud of the performance last time out at Chipstead, but every game is so different and it all depends on what we have available.

‘We barely had any defenders available last game and loads of offensive-minded players and got a good result. Flip it around and this time we have defenders back but fewer offensive options.

‘Obviously, Faz was flying so it’s a big disappointment for him, but last year if we had lost him we did not have a similar striker to bring in – this year we have Sam Murray.

‘Keene Domaille has been training well and with Danny Hale, too, we still have good options.’

Westfield are unbeaten in the league since August and have won their last three in a row.

‘If they win their games in hand, they would go up to second or third, so they are obviously doing very well this year and it’s going to be a tough challenge,’ Vance said.

‘We need to have a home win soon because that’s the one that people get the most motivation from because you have the local support there and all eyes are on you.’

. GFC v Westfield kicks off at 2pm.
