The heart of Guernsey’s defence has received a boost ahead of Saturday’s Isthmian South Central clash with the return of captain Jamie Dodd and centre-back partner Jacob Fallaize.

Dodd has missed the last two games, while Fallaize was also absent with injury for the Green Lions’ most recent outing, the last-gasp win over Sutton Common Rovers.

Thomas Dodds and Tom Vaudin were magnificent in that backs-to-the-wall defensive display in the second half and are also in contention.

The intriguing battle for the number one shirt continues as both Jason Martin and Josh Addison are selected, having played two games each so far. Matt Loaring misses out through injury, and Keene Domaille is suspended following his red card against Sutton Common Rovers. Liam Mahon is training again after the injury he sustained against Southall, and as working back to fitness.

The full squad is as follows: Martin, Addison, Marsh, McKane, Vaudin, Fallaize, Dodd, Le Tocq, Dodds, K Mahon, Wallace, Allen, Hale, Legg, Fazakerley, Murray.

GFC could trouble the top half of the table depending on other results, and could chalk up their 100th league win at Footes Lane.

The Green Lions have met Leatherhead three times previously, all in our first season at this level in 2013-14. A 2-0 defeat at Thatcham Grove was avenged by the same scoreline thanks to a Ross Allen brace.

The Tanners were then surprise opponents in the play-off semi-final, with a six-point deduction on the final day of the season seeing them drop to third, therefore facing fourth-placed Guernsey. At Thatcham Grove, a home side bolstered by pulling in a handful of new players thanks to benefitting from dual-registration, raced into a 3-0 lead. Dave Rihoy and Marc McGrath gave the Sarnians hope late on, and Matt Loaring’s equalising volley was disallowed for offside, but they were unable to find an equaliser and Leatherhead went on to secure promotion in the final.

The Surrey side, who have won one and lost three in the league this season, have been in the Premier Division ever since, but finished 20th last season to confirm their relegation. Their summer additions include forward Dave Tarpey, who found the net 19 times least season to help Bracknell Town to the Isthmian South Central title.
