Seventh-placed Rugby went ahead through Sam Belcher’s penalty in a keenly-contested first half. The visitors levelled with a penalty of their own after the break and then took the lead, to leave Valley disappointed in defeat.

Rugby Town begin the first in a run of four away games on Saturday with a trip to Quorn, who are 15th in the MFL Premier Division.
