SIX games, six wins – no wonder Bracknell Town manager Mark Tallentire says Binfield must be sick of the sight of them, writes Dave Wright.

And Moles boss Roger Herridge admitted they were, following his side’s 3-0 defeat in the Reading Invitation Senior Cup final.

In addition to a double in the Hellenic League, the Robins knocked their local rivals out of the FA Vase and the Hellenic League Cup before beating them in the Berks & Bucks Senior Trophy final last month.

Binfield battled hard to end the sequence at Madejski Stadium last Saturday, but, like they had previously, the Moles were left looking second best.

They managed to hold out until the last 10 minutes when TJ Bohane headed home and the Moles then gifted their neighbours two more goals, with substitute Khalid Senussi taking advantage on both occasions.

“To beat your local rivals six times in a season is quite something,” said Tallentire.

“They must be sick of the sight of us,” said Tallentire.

“I like Roger (Herridge) and have a lot of time for him, but I know he will be hurting after this.”

And he certainly was.

“Yes, we are sick to death of Bracknell this year,” admitted the Moles manager.

“But you can’t take away the quality they have got, and it’s quality that wins you things.

“That said, I am still proud of my team’s efforts as they worked hard, but Bracknell undoubtedly looked sharper than we did.

“We were missing several players, but we were still competitive and, at 0-0, we were in with a chance for much of the game.”

Herridge continued: “We had a few scoring changes through Knighty (James Knight) and Jon Bennett and with Mo (keeper Nyamunga) making some good saves, we were starting to think it might just be our day.

“But we allowed TJ a free header from a corner and we then gifted them two more goals.

“The biggest disappointment for me was the way we conceded those goals. We switched off and got punished and you can’t do that against a side like Bracknell.”

Herridge did not dispute the fact that Town enjoyed a lion’s share of possession.

The Robins were not quite at their best, particularly in front of goal, but Binfield certainly didn’t make it easy for them with Ali Dickie looking particularly impressive in defence.

The Moles, who had come from behind to beat Woodcote Stoke Row 3-1 in their semi-final last Wednesday, were the first side to show signs of tiredness on the Madejski Stadium pitch.

And, with Bracknell attacking almost incessantly, a goal or two just had to happen.

The breakthrough came when Bohane headed home in the 83rd minute, his 48th goal of the season.

He then came off to be replaced by Senussi and the sub’s fresh legs added to the Moles’ misery, taking advantage of poor defending to score in the 89th minute and then again in stoppage time.

Bracknell thoroughly deserved their victory, but Binfield will no doubt consider the 3-0 scoreline as being harsh on them.
