Guernsey’s Italian job

ITALY already look the team to beat this week in Sussex, but Nic Pothas, pictured, has no doubt that his men can overcome the side who lead the way in group A, two points clear of Guernsey.
The two unbeaten sides in the group meet on the Horsham second pitch this morning and having watched the Italians overwhelm the tiring Norwegians at Preston Nomads on Tuesday, the Guernsey coach will work on a game plan to beat them.
‘At this level, they are a very good team and have all the bases covered,’ he said.
‘They are obviously a pretty well-drilled team who come together from all over the world. They have a couple of Aussies and South Africans, who are massively competitive individuals who don’t like losing.
‘But we have a definite game plan for them.’
