BINFIELD's mini-revival of three successive wins came to an end on Saturday when they were beaten 1-0 at home by second-bottom Abingdon United in the Hellenic League Premier Division, the winner coming deep into stoppage time.

The Moles were reduced to 10 men from the 17th minute when central defender Gary Smith was harshly sent off for a mistimed challenge.

The referee considered he was the last man, although it looked as though Idris Kamara was back covering.

"Despite the sending off we rarely looked in trouble and created plenty of chances to score, but we just didn't take them," said manager Roger Herridge.

When his side were on target, they were foiled by the Abingdon keeper, Jack Pritchard, who made several excellent saves.

With 90 minutes up, the game appeared to be heading for a goalless draw, but in the fourth minute the visitors were awarded a controversial penalty when Joe Green went down in the area.

An unhappy Herridge commented: "It was given by a lino, although the ref was 10 yards away and didn't seem to see any offence."

Jack Dart made no mistake from the spot, giving keeper David Lyons no chance.

This coming Saturday, the Moles are home to fifth-bottom Tuffley Rovers and next Tuesday (7.45pm) travel to Windsor's Stag Meadow to face Virginia Water.

Wokingham & Emmbrook, who were due to visit Wallingford Town last night (Tuesday) in the Reading Senior Cup, return to Division One East action against Penn & Tylers Green at Larges Lane next Tuesday (7.45pm).

The Sumas are currently sixth in table, three places higher than their visitors.

Nine minutes later skipper Luke Burrows completed the scoring against Dorking, who ended the game with 10 men following a red card for Luke Cunningham.
