Binfield FC 1-1 Chertsey Town – Match Report

Binfield earned their second Isthmian League point of the season with a well-deserved draw at the Iconic Stadium.

After a quiet first half, the Moles had the best chance at the end of the first half when Troy Murray played through Jimmy Bamgbose but he was unable to get his shot away and then from the resulting corner Michael Stanic-Stewart was able to head the ball back across goal but Rechan Esprit’s shot was well blocked.

Chertsey then had a golden opportunity to take the lead early into the second half when the ball was played through the Gianluca Totti but Nicholas Harvey, on his Binfield debut, did well to close down the angle and turn the ball behind for a corner.

Esprit then tested Nicholas Jupp from long range who did well to get down to his left and then on the hour mark, Dontaye Whittaker was played through and bought down in the area with referee Stephen Hawkes pointing to the spot. Whittaker picked himself up and sent Jupp the wrong way to give the Moles the lead.

Then they had a couple of opportunities to double their lead but Murray’s shot was blocked and Ben Stallard’s effort was straight at Jupp.

Chertsey got their equaliser with ten minutes to go when Toby Little’s free kick was nodded in by Liam Flanighan. They thought they had won it when Gareth Chendlik headed in six minutes later but linesman Ricky Ansher had his flag up and the points were shared.

That puts the Moles two points from safety and they face 18th place Metropolitan Police at the Iconic Stadium on Saturday.
