Town ended the game with 10 men following the dismissal of Connor Kennedy for two bookable offences.

Rushden & Diamonds were beaten 2-0 at Rushall Olympic.

Alex Collard's own goal and a finish from Daniel Glover settled it for the hosts, although Diamonds are level on points with fifth-placed Alvechurch in the final play-off spot, with games in hand.

Zak Goodson scored in either half as Ilkeston Town left Corby Town with a 2-0 win in the Noerthern Premier League Midlands.
