A SERIOUS injury to Khalid Senussi took some of the gloss of Binfield’s battling performance which earned them a 3-3 draw at Brimscombe & Thrupp on Saturday.

He was carried off in the first half with what could be damage to his anterior cruciate ligament.

At the time Moles were trailing 1-0 to a Sam Blackie header, but Sean Moore equalised in the 32nd minute and two minutes later Jemel Johnson (pictured) put them ahead, only for Tom Pass to bring the scores level by the interval.

They regained the lead through Johnson on 55 minutes and held it until the 88th minute when substitute James Singh equalised for the home side who remain second in the table.

“We deserved to win the game,” said Binfield manager Roger Herridge.

“It was a very good performance considering we were missing three centre-backs. Charlie Tuttle filled in alongside Liam Gavin and was excellent.”

Last Wednesday, the Moles had lost 2-1 at Hellenic League Premier Division leaders Brackley Town Saints.

The hosts went ahead in the 54th minute through James Hammond, but it took Moles just two minutes to get on level terms thanks to Moore.

Binfield had defender Gavin sent off in the 69th minute following two yellow cards and shortly afterwards they conceded a second goal to James Watts.

Herridge commented: “We are disappointed to have got one point from our last two games against the top sides. We certainly deserved more.

“The positives are we know we are capable of putting a run together which would move us up the table.”

Binfield are home to the fourth-placed club, Royal Wootton Bassett, this Saturday (3pm).
