Rushden's Wayne Hatswell scored at both ends in the entertaining draw with Stevenage on Friday night.
Hatswell mis-kicked an attempted clearance to put Stevenage ahead.
He made amends 10 minutes before half-time when Paul Watson delivered an inviting cross and Hatswell headed past Alan Julian.
Chris Hope thumped home a header to put Diamonds 2-1 up just before the break but Jon Nurse scored early in the second half to give Boro a point.
