Guernsey face their 93rd different team in their history as new opponents Whitehawk visit Footes Lane on Sunday.

Tony Vance has had his selection options boosted with the return of midfielder Kieran Mahon, who is back from injury; Robbie Legg, who has been working his way back to fitness; and Tom De La Mare, who has been off-island for the past couple of games. Jacob Fallaize has returned to his studies in the US and so there will be at least one change to the starting line-up.

Ross Allen could register his 250th goal for the club, while Carlos Canha is set to reach his half century of appearances for the club.

One of the form teams in Isthmian South East, the Hawks haven't lost since October, a run of nine games, and sit third in the table with games in hand. The Green Lions are without a win in five, but have produced some of their best performances and results when coming up against teams in the top five this season.

The Brighton-based side have brought a large following with them to the island for the game.

Sunday's match kicks off at 2pm. Fans unable to make it to Footes Lane can watch full live coverage on GFCTV and keep up to date via the club's social media challenges. Highlights and the full 90-minute playback will be uploaded after the game, and a comprehensive match report will also follow.
