Rushden & Diamonds 2-0 Eastbourne

Goals from Lee Tomlin and Michael Rankine saw Rushden grab a deserved win at home to Eastbourne.

The home side started very brightly and Rankine was off target with a shot from just inside the area, while Chris Hope fired wide when well placed.

They eventually went in front as Brendan Maloney crossed for Tomlin to finish from 12 yards.

The result was secured as Rankine headed home from close range after Hope's header was only parried.
