BINFIELD FC threw away a two-goal lead and were beaten 3-2 on Monday as Windsor scored two late goals with the winner coming in stoppage time, writes Dave Wright.

It brought an end to the Moles's 10-match unbeaten run, and was only their second defeat in 18 games.

But as manager Roger Herridge said: “We didn't deserve to lose.”

Binfield were the better team in the first half, but couldn't find a way past keeper Hugo Sobte, who made one particularly outstanding save to deny Ian Davies.

“We played some nice football with some good build-up play,” added Herridge.

“We created a lot of chances without the end product and I said to the players at half time 'make sure we are not punished for it'.”

Gary Smith broke the deadlock after 51 minutes and a smart move involving Jack Thompson Wheeler and Davies led to Josh Howell making it 2-0 just after the hour mark.

But within five minutes Matt Woods pulled a goal back for Windsor, who had made five changes to the team that defeated Hamble Club 2-0 in the fifth round of the FA Vase on Saturday.

The visitors upped the tempo, only to be denied by keeper Henry Craven and a last-ditch tackle from Smith. Then defender Haydon Clack cracked a left-footer against the post.

But their pressure paid off with Nadir Shafi equalising in the 86th minute and in stoppage time a right-wing cross struck Binfield's Will Shaw and rebounded into the net for the winner.

It was unfortunate for young Shaw as he had an excellent game as a stand-in left-back.

Herridge commented: “It was a game neither side deserved to lose.

We put ourselves in a position to win the game, but didn't manage with a few (players) running out of steam late on.”

The Moles manager has signed wide-man Zidan Akers, on a dual registration with Maidenhead United, and centre-back Liam Gavin, on a similar arrangement with Wessex League side Amesbury.

This Saturday, Binfield travel to Brackley Town Saints (3pm), seeking revenge for their 4-1 defeat in October.
