River Marsh could make his third appearance for Guernsey as he earns a call up to Tony Vance's 15-man squad that travels to Herne Bay tomorrow.

If he and younger brother Keanu both play, it will be the first time the pair have represented the Green Lions together.

Liam Mahon, Dave Rihoy, Jamie Dodd and Tom De La Mare are also back after being unavailable for the midweek win over Shoreham. Frank Tobin and Dominic Heaume are unavailable to travel , while Ben Coulter continues to be rested as he manages an ongoing knee problem.

Jordan Kelly, Thomas Dodds, Jacob Fallaize and Charlton Gauvain are all being rested due to their inclusion in the U21 Muratti squad as they host Jersey on Sunday. Craig Young, Robbie Legg, Josh Steel and Jack Domaille all remain on the injury list.

The full squad picked by Vance is as follows: Stanton, Geall, K Marsh, Le Prevost, Dodd, H Tobin, R Marsh, De La Mare, Black, L Mahon, Skillen, Loaring, Rihoy, Pereira, Le Lacheur.

The Green Lions have lost just once in 10 matches and haven't lost away from home since January - a run of four matches. They can move up two places to 17th in Bostik South, and level on points with VCD Athletic in 16th.

The Bay have won three of their last six and sit in mid-table with a chance of moving up one place to 11th. 

In the nine previous meetings between the two sides, Guernsey are edging it with three wins to Herne Bay's two, with four hard-fought draws making up the rest of them.
