Guernsey FC boss Tony Vance says his side almost had the "perfect away performance" in their loss at Lewes.
The Green Lions lost 1-0 in Sussex and their wait for an away win is into its 10th month.
"One little lapse of concentration happened in the wrong area and they punished us," said Vance.
"Apart from that we nearly got what I thought we deserved just from our approach to the game," the Green Lions boss told BBC Radio Guernsey.
"We got nothing from the game, but I'm still quite buoyant from the fact that it was almost a perfect away performance, but it wasn't to be unfortunately."
