Tuesday, 30 March 2010
The Lankies halted a seven match losing run with this Fernie Fields draw.
Rangers took a 13th minute lead through Glen Gibb who converted a corner at the far post but Oscar Oku levelled for the visitors four minutes before half time with a low shot which squeezed under home keeper Olly Garafalo's body.
After 76 minutes Curtis Long put Rushden & Higham within sight of victory, cutting inside to fire home, but they were pegged back seven minutes from time by a Matthaus Marriott equaliser for Sileby whil the defence appealed in vain for a foul on Ryan Kalla.
