UNBEATEN Hellenic League leaders Westfields have opened up a 16-point lead, but Binfield manager Roger Herridge insists the title race is far from over, writes Dave Wright.

And he believes the Moles are the only side looking capable of overhauling the Hereford-based club.

In-form Binfield are now leading the chasing pack, having moved up to second place in the standings following their 4-1 win over Burnham and, importantly, they have five games in hand on the table-toppers ahead of their visit to Easington Sports tonight (Tuesday).

"Westfields probably think they have already won the league," said Herridge, whose side are only halfway through their Premier Division fixtures.

"They are favourites and rightly so because they are a really good side, but if we can keep on winning our games and close the gap we will put them under pressure.

"The more games we win, the closer we will get to Westfields. They will be looking over their shoulder and might become a little bit anxious."

Herridge added: "We are in good form and there is a great spirit in the camp. I believe this side is good enough to win the league, but we might have to bring a couple of players in.

"We have got a lot of games to play and the longer the season goes on players are likely to get tired and injured."

Commenting on the win over Burnham, the manager said: " I thought we rarely looked troubled. There was not a poor performer in a red shirt."

While praising Asa Povey, who opened the scoring early on and never stopped running for the rest of the game, and Elliott Legg, who produced an astonishing goal-line clearance, Herridge said Idris

Kamara deserved a special mention.

The big centre-back got a rare opportunity in the starting line-up as Calam Gallimore had a work engagement.

"Iddy has a really good attitude," said the manager. "He had not played as much as he would have liked and hardly had a game in the past month, but he came in and did not put a foot wrong. I

thought he was outstanding."
