Rugby Town managed to rescue a point from their game with fifth-placed Pinchbeck United at a windy Butlin Road on Saturday. The visitors had gone ahead on the stroke of half time, having had the wind with them in the first half. But Valley earned a penalty in stoppage time, put away by Edwin Ahenkorah to equalise for a final score of 1-1.
