    LIVE SCORE: City 1 (Reynolds 22) Rugby Town 1 (Hendrie 45+1)
  • CITY missed the chance to steal a march on their promotion rivals in a scrappy 1-1 draw at home to Rugby.
  • Dave Reynolds marked his 25th goal of the season in style with a bicycle kick that nestled inside the near post after Alex Tomkinson caressed in from the left midway through the first half.
  • There were chances at either end as the both teams failed to look after the ball but Rugby gradually forced back City and warranted their leveller in first-half stoppage time.
  • Ruben Wiggins-Thomas was played down the right and held up as Mark Smith went to ground before picking out the marauding Stuart Hendrie to nudge inside the far post.
  • The scrappy nature continued in the second half with City lacking the guile to finish the odd chance that came their way.
  • Substitute Sam Belcher smashed against the underside of the bar at one end with Mark Smith glancing against the face of the crossbar at the other late on and a share of the spoils was a fair result.
  • The only winner in the top four was Highgate United with top-two Bromsgrove Sporting and Coleshill Town held to draws.
  • City: Gwynne, Chiwara, J Smith, Stoddart, M Smith, Hayward, Gomes, Forsyth, Robinson, Reynolds, Tomkinson.
  • Subs: Danks, Moran, Ambalu, Halil, Przybek (g/k).
  • Rugby: Cooper, Wright, Birch, Dance, Castleton, Holloway, Hendrie, Mills, Kolodynski, Wiggins-Thomas, Ruff.
