Binfield FC vs Northwood Match report – Moles fall to league loss.

Read our match report from our Bank holiday defeat to Northwood FC at The Skyline Roofing Stadium.

Despite a much-improved second half, the Moles suffered their second league defeat at the hands of Northwood at The Skyline Roofing Stadium.

Northwood started the game stronger and had an early chance when in-form Osaretin Otote worked some space at the back post but he was unable to find the target. Harvey Rackley-Hayes then denied Dan Williams with a strong left hand after being played through over the top of the Binfield defence.

Northwood took the lead from the resulting corner when Rackley-Hayes appeared to be impeded when attempting to get to the ball but nothing was given and Teddy Stacey was able to head the ball into an empty net. 

They doubled their lead soon after. Good work from Otote on the right flank and he was able to pick out Williams at the back post who slotted it into the net.

The Moles then began to enjoy a bit of possession with Zeid Hannachi (who was an early substitute for the injured Tyrone Knight) able to get the better of his fullback and find Dontaye Whittaker but he was unable to get full control of the ball. Troy Murray and George Winser then both had effort from the edge of the box but both well comfortably dealt with.

Binfield came out strong in the second half and got their reward when Hannachi found Whittaker and Dontaye finished well – his second in as many days. He then had an opportunity to equalise but his attempted lob went agonisingly wide of the left post.

Northwood restored their two goal cushion through Harry Gallagher – a carbon copy of their first. Kofi Anokye-Boadi added a fourth after a swift team move.

The Moles fought hard in the second half and were arguably the better team but just lacked the chances to pull them back into the match.

The scoreline is harsh on Binfield based on the second-half performance but they will look for revenge on Saturday when we face the same opponent in the FA Cup at Hill Farm Lane.
