Rushden & D 1-1 Stevenage

Striker Sam Smith struck deep in injury time to earn Rushden a draw with Stevenage on Thursday.

Steve Morison looked to have sunk Diamonds when he fired home from the edge of the area in the 32nd minute.

Midfielder Mitchell Cole had the chance to double the visitors' advantage just before the break, but he drilled his effort wide when well placed.

But after Smith first failed to beat Chris Day from close range he scored with nearly the game's last kick.
