GRAVESEND had to settle for a point after failing to find a breakthrough against 10-man Rushden & Diamonds on Tuesday night.

The visitors, who fought back from two goals down to force a draw at the weekend, enjoyed the better chances.

Fleet came desperately close to breaking the deadlock in the 18th minute but his stunning volley came back off the crossbar.

Liam Daish's side were grateful to keeper Lance Cronin, who saved well from Michael Ronkine, before Rankine received his marching orders after fouls on Slatter and Jon Keeling.

Gravesend lie seventh in the Nationwide Conference table.

Gravesend: Cronin, J Smith, McCarthy (Hawkins 40), R Smith (Coleman 58), Ricketts, Quinn, Slatter, DeBolla, Keeling, Coleman (Sodje 76), Moore, MacDonald.
Subs not used: Mott, Purcell.
