It’s a weekend of long Hellenic Premier Division away days for Binfield and Ascot United who both have trips down the M4 to Gloucestershire on Saturday.

The Moles are unbeaten in their last four league games – six overall – and manager Roger Herridge is targeting a top six finish for his Hill Farm Lane squad.

Ascot are desperately looking for points to claw their way out of the bottom four and are six points behind 16th placed Woodley United.

The Yellamen put in a really solid performance against a youthful EFL League One MK Dons in midweek and will hope to take that confidence on, but there will be injury concerns over new forward Ben Harris who limped out of the game.

Traffic and travel warning: If you are headed down the M4 at the weekend, please allow extra time as the motorway is due to close on Friday evening for the weekend in both directions between junction 12 (Theale) and 13 (Chieveley/Newbury). Full details from our friends at Get Reading here.

There’s no fixture for Bracknell Town who have time off before their FA Vase Third Round tie on 2nd December but there are very winnable home ties for both Woodley and Windsor on Saturday.

In Division 1 East Wokingham & Emmbrook are on a bit of a recovery, winning their last two games – one of which was against Saturday’s opponents Wallingford Town who head to Lowther Road following a 7-1 defeat to Virginia Water a week ago.
