Binfield FC 4-1 Corinthian Casuals – Match report

The Moles added three more points to their Isthmian League tally on Tuesday night as they ran out 4-1 winners at the Iconic Stadium.

They fell a goal behind after just 3 minutes though, as the visitors looked to pile the pressure on the Moles’ defence early on and were successful in doing so when Andrew Herring struck home after just two minutes.

Dontaye Whittaker levelled things up instantly though, when he headed home from close range just minutes later, adding his 14th goal of the season.

The Moles then took control and after a string of chances, they eventually found the goal to put them ahead when Connor Holland was afforded space on the edge of the area before he struck a low driven effort into the bottom corner.

The Moles then added a third goal, just before the break when Whittaker caused problems after some great work on the left from the Moles. Whittaker’s effort rifled into the roof of the net and the Moles were two goals in front.

The Moles were gifted a chance to add a fourth when Whittaker was swiped out in the area but Corinthian Casuals stopper Tom Theobald guessed the right way and denied Mitch Parker a 3rd penalty goal in 4 matches.

The Moles were in cruise control for the remainder of the match and looked as if they were happy to see out a 3-1 win.

Corinthian Casuals, who were all but confirmed to be relegated before kick-off, were happy for the Moles to do this and struggled to get a foothold in the match.

The Moles also had the last say, when substitute Oke-William tapped home from close range to add a fourth moles goal just before injury time.

The result means that the Moles close the gap to just 1 point behind 19th placed Chipstead, with a game in hand on their relegation rivals. 

Match Report

Chipstead 0-5 Binfield FC – Match Report

A clinical Binfield FC grab their 4th win of the Isthmian League season as we take all three points from Chipstead, and close the gap to 7 points.

A tense opening 20 minutes saw a lack of chances for either side, but this was to be expected for a clash between two sides battling at the wrong end of the table.

The first chance of the game fell to Binfield and Tyler D’Cruz. He found some space on the edge of the area after some brilliant combination play between Parker and Holland on the left hand side, D’Cruz, however, couldn’t keep his shot down and it flies over the bar.

It was D’Cruz who was on the end of a long throw from Luke Wayborn, but his header from 10-yards out rattled the crossbar before coming back to him, his subsequent shot being blocked behind for a corner.

The Moles eventually found a breakthrough, and it was new signing Mitch Parker who slotted home from 6-yards-out after D’Cruz’s effort was parried by Baldwin Kaluya, putting the moles a goal ahead at the break.

The Moles switched on at the start of the second-half and doubled our lead just 6-minutes after the break as Connor Holland, who also signed for the club in mid-week, finished off a goal-mouth scramble as the ball was crossed to the back post after D’Cruz’s effort was well saved.

Chipstead struggled to defend against the Moles side who looked full of confidence, and that showed on the hour-mark as Rahzir Smith-Jones finished off a well worked move, with his first goal for the club.

It was then Lindo’s turn to get his name on the score-sheet, and it was his cool finish that put the Moles 4-goals ahead with 10 minutes to play.

Charlie George, another Moles substitute, found the back of the net as he tapped home Smith-Jones’ corner to cap off a fantastic Moles display at The NRT Stadium.

Next up for the boys is a Tuesday trip to Badshot Lea, before a run of three home games, starting on Thursday night.
