Royal Wootton Bassett Town's winless league run extended to three games thanks to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Binfield.
Having the chance to move back into the top half of the Hellenic League Premier Division failed to act as sufficient motivation for Royal Wootton Bassett as they were defeated 3-1 by Binfield.
Victory would have lifted Bassett above the Berkshire Moles by virtue of goal difference.
However, Bassett were outfought and ultimately well beaten with their performance leaving manager Rich Hunter scratching his head as to why his troops failed to summon the levels of desire and commitment demanded of them.
Jon Bennett opened the scoring for Binfield after just ten minutes.
Dan Bailey did pull Bassett level midway through the opening period.
Yet, the hosts got their noses in front again shortly after the restart courtesy of their leading scorer Liam Ferdinand.
Then, in the fifth minute of added time, Luke Hayden added the third.
It was a disappointing afternoon all round for Bassett as they failed to take advantage of Binfield defender Jack Broome being forced to play in goal for an extended period of the game after an injury to regular custodian Munoda Nyamunga.
