It was a good showing by a weakened Moles side that brought their poor run to an end, and halted Ascot’s nine-game winning streak in the process.

The Yellamen settled first and had the better of the first half chances, but Charlie Lusty was in fine form to keep a deserved clean sheet for the home side.

It was only his third appearance in a Binfield shirt but there were no sign of nerves as he raced off his line to superbly deny Damien Markman after 10 minutes.

He was then off his mark again quickly to clear the danger when Daryl McLean was sent through as Ascot pushed for the opening goal.

Binfield were pushing forward themselves though – knowing a win would take them up to fifth in the Hellenic League Premier Division – and Josh Pearson forced a fine low save out of Chris Grace moments later.

Carl Withers and Jamie Connor also went close for Binfield, whilst Lusty had to be alert to tip Joe Grant’s header away from danger on the stroke of half time.

The second half continued in a similar fashion with chances spurned at either end as Markman missed for Ascot despite being well placed in the opening stages.

Josh Howell fired into the side netting from eight yards before Carl Withers and Aaron Rowland wasted good opportunites for the hosts.

It was Ascot in command towards the end of the contest and despite enjoying the majority of possession, they couldn’t find a way past Lusty.

The closest Jeff Lamb’s men came was Grant’s effort that crashed against the post as both sides settled for a deserved point.

The result means Binfield finish sixth in the table, though they will slip to seventh if Highworth Town beat Ardley United in their final game of the season.

Ascot will finish third in the table and end their league campaign at struggling Reading Town on Thursday (7.45pm).

Binfield are back in action themselves on Thursday with a Reading Senior Cup semi-final at Henley Town.

l AFTER the game, Seb Bowerman collected the supporters Player of the Month award for March.

The tricky winger starred through the month with five goals in five appearances, including a brace in the Flying Press Floodlit Cup semi final against Rayners Lane.

The 20-year-old’s commitment is evident in him travelling back from university in Birimingham to continue playing for the Moles, representing the Hill Farm Lane side in 46 of their 53 matches so far, scoring 14 times.
