UCL Division One

Rushden & Higham Utd 1 Eynesbury Rovers 1

DESPITE having seven players missing through injuries, suspensions and unavailability, Al ­Lenihan's men picked up a good point at Rushden.

Rovers created the first chance of the game when Dwayne Rankin tested the home goalkeeper with a looping effort before visiting keeper Danny Workman was tested with a fizzing drive.

Stuart Humphreys and Jamie Graham had further good efforts for Eynesbury and Dan Woodhead saw his header saved.

The home side took the lead three minutes before half-time through Steve Ainge but Rovers levelled inside one minute of the second period when Rankin looped the ball home following a good move.
