Home comforts for Binfield FC while Ascot United head to Oxfordshire

Binfield will hope to get back to winning ways tomorrow when they host seventeenth place Brackley Town Saints whilst Ascot United travel to Ardley United who are only above Saints on goal difference in the Uhlsport Hellenic Premier Division.

The Moles have suffered two successive defeats after exiting the FA Vase last Friday at the hands of local rivals Bracknell Town before going down to a narrow 1-0 loss at Highmoor-IBIS on Tuesday evening.

Saints have only won twice in the league this season with both of those victories against teams who like themselves are in the bottom four – Henley Town and basement side Burnham.

Manager Roger Herridge admitted after last Friday’s FA Vase exit that his side deserved nothing and had lost to a better team on the night but he will be fully expecting of a victory tomorrow.

Victory will see the Moles at least remain in third place but they could climb to the top or drop as low as fifth place depending on results elsewhere.

Ardley United and Ascot United collide in Oxfordshire.

The Yellamen had been on a great run before being derailed by Thatcham Town last weekend who saw off a depleted United 3-0.

However, it was victory on Wednesday evening as Romaine Walker struck both goals in a 2-1 victory over Brackley Town Saints.

For their troubles, Ardley are in a bit of a rut with their last league win coming on Tuesday 6th September and manager Jeff Lamb will be confident of securing the three points if he has a full team to choose from and not another depleted squad.

Elsewhere, league leaders Thatcham Town host Highmoor Ibis in what should be a great contest whilst second placed Flackwell Heath travel to fifth place Tuffley Rovers in what should be a very even affair.

Bottom club Burnham are still without a point but have improved losing each of their last three matches by only a solitary goal and they host Longlevens tomorrow in what will be new manager Gifton Noel-Williams first game in the dugout and we would not bet against them picking up at least a point tomorrow.

Bracknell Town are without a match tomorrow as in addition to the fourteen sides in league action tomorrow, three sides are in cup competition and we offer our best wishes to our friends at Brimscombe & Thrupp who travel to Weymouth in the Emirates FA Cup.

The full Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division fixtures for tomorrow are:

Ardley United v Ascot United
Binfield v Brackley Town Saints
Burnham v Longlevens
Highworth Town v Thame United
Royal Wootton Bassett Town v Oxford City Nomads
Thatcham Town v Highmoor-IBIS
Tuffley Rovers v Flackwell Heath
