Joe Grant equalised on 78 minutes with a header from a deflected cross after Jack Broome gave Binfield a 1-0 lead at half time.

Two minutes later and it was George Short who fired home from close range to give the Robins a 2-1 lead.

During the game, watched by an official crowd of 351 Bracknell had a goal ruled out and missed a penalty.

James Bartaby reports: So the penalty was given for handball against the Binfield defender. But the ref whistled AFTER the ball hit he net. Should have stood.
