Corby Town secured a hard fought point at the Northolme stadium on Saturday afternoon, against Gainsborough Trinity.
The Steelmen boss Chris Plummer added Leon McKenzie to his starting line-up, in place of Avelino Vieira, and it was the former Norwich man who teed up Sam Ives to volley the opening goal of the match on 22 minutes to the delight of the travelling Corby contingent.
The visitors doubled their lead less than 60 seconds later, when McKenzie added a second assist and Ryan Semple finished in style.
Trinity have been impressive so far this season and have only lost three times. The Steelmen's frailties from set-pieces was again exposed before half time as Danny Hone headed home from a corner to give the home side hope.
They were deservedly back on level terms just nine minutes into the second half, when Dominic Knowles headed the ball past Paul Walker at the far post.
The home side continued to push forward in search of a winner, however they found Steelmen goalkeeper Paul Walker in inspired form.
