Binfield are at home this Saturday in a Hellenic League Premier Division match where the Moles will be looking to improve on their current 13th place.

They host Royal Wootton Bassett Town who are yet to win a league game away from home this season.

What is remarkable is that despite their away form Bassett currently lie in fourth place due to their excellent home form that has seen them win eight out of ten home fixtures.

Fourth place Royal Wootton Basset were on the wrong end of a 4-3 defeat to Reading City at Scours Lane in midweek and will be looking to overturn that when they play in Berkshire again on Saturday.

The Wottoon Bassett twitter feed has acknowledged their difficulties at Binfield in the past, revealing they have never won at Hill Farm Lane.

Despite these facts it’s unlikely that Roger Herridge’s side will be complacent. They’ll know all about their opposition including two very familiar faces in the front-line of the visiting club.

Former Binfield player Bradley Pagliaroli has scored ten goals in nineteen appearances this season and will likely be joined up front by former Bracknell Town striker TJ Bohane who has continued his Hellenic Premier scoring form with eleven goals in his seventeen.

Both sides will be aware that records are there to be broken, the Moles will be hoping that Wootton Bassett’s strange away form continues for at least another game.
