BOSTON Town earned their third draw in eight days as they shared the spoils with derby rivals Spalding United.

The Poachers and Tulips were both reduced to 10 men after little more than 10 minutes, Jack Smith and Ricky Miller getting their marching orders for an altercation that left Smith with a bloodied nose.

Spalding took a 40th-minute lead as Michael Wood deflected into his own net.

However, Mark Foster levelled for Town on the hour.

The Poachers had previously drawn with Newport Pagnell and King’s Lynn.
