St Neots lost pole position after sharing the spoils on their first visit to Eslaforde Park.
The pacesetters took a 10th minute lead through Ryan Francis who headed in an Arin Fehmi cross, but Sleaford were level atter 26 minutes thanks to a Michael Stones equaliser, a looping header from a Kris Jones cross.
A fine late save from Roy Bloxham in the Saints goal prevented Stones from winning the contest.
