Guernsey FC assistant manager Colin Fallaize was delighted at how his side bounced back from their first home loss of the season to beat Feltham 3-1.

Ross Allen opened the scoring after three minutes to take his tally for the season to 48 goals but Feltham equalised just before half-time.

Matt Loaring restored Guernsey's lead on 57 minutes before Dominic Heaume got the third in stoppage time.

The win sees Guernsey stay seven points clear at the top of the table.

"It was a good job well done," Fallaize told BBC Guernsey.

"It was a relief to get three points after not performing to the level we would have liked last week.

"Whenever you suffer a defeat you need to get back on it as soon as possible and it was our first opportunity to put some of the things that we didn't feel we executed very well at home but away from home we did a lot of those things right."

And with Ross Allen closing in on a half-century of goals in Combined Counties League and Cup action, Fallaize says the 24-year-old has done well not to be distracted by speculation surrounding his future.

Allen has thanks to his record of almost two goals per game.

"I'm not worried, I'm thrilled for Ross," Fallaize said. "If we're in this for anything then we're in this to try and better everybody that's involved.

"And if by Ross Allen playing for a side like Guernsey FC he attracts some interest in his talent then that would be top of the list as regards to any success that we get.

"If nothing was to come from it and it was to ruin Ross's performance and have an effect on Ross as an individual then I would be worried for Ross.

"But Ross is playing his game, put a tremendous amount of effort into the game and showed some great character for his team-mates."
