THREE things to expect from tonight’s Binfield vs Bracknell Town Cup Final

Binfield and Bracknell Town clash tonight for the fifth time this season in the final of the Berks & Bucks County FA Senior Trophy at Windsor’s Stag Meadow ground (ko 7.30pm).

Here’s what to expect:

Two teams with a point to prove

Bracknell Town have the incredible disappointment of a runners up spot in the Uhlsport Hellenic Premier Division just when it looked like they were odds on to win it to shake off while Binfield have not beaten their B3018 rivals in four encounters this season.

The Moles have had an up and down 2016/17 season but have had an extra few days rest going in to the tie.

We certainly expect neither side to give an inch!

Who will cope better with their missing players?

Both sides are missing key players which we’ve detailed here.

Bracknell brought in Carl Withers and Callum Whitty to replace the suspended Carl Davies and Jamie McClurg on Saturday and you would expect them to do so again while Binfield will likely look to reserve team goalkeeper Liam Vaughan to fill the gap left by cup-tied Mo Nyamunga.

A big crowd at Stag Meadow

This could be a real memorable night for a County Cup Final and full credit to the Berks & Bucks for choosing Windsor over Wycombe Wanderers or MK Dons where (if the chatter on social media is to be believed) we can expect a good three figure crowd which would look lost in a Football League Ground.

There is plenty of room at Windsor and in addition, the money made from the staging of the final will stay in grassroots football should be applauded.
