Stamford AFC earned a draw against derby rivals Grantham Town this afternoon (Wednesday) in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division.

Gregg Smith put Grantham in front with a header on 15 minutes. The visiting Stamford hung-on and battled in the cold, wind and rain.

The equaliser came in the 70th minute when Shawn Richards made a great run down the wing and picked out Jordan Smith who headed home.

The draw moves Stamford up to 18th and five points above the drop zone. Grantham are now in 20th.

Stamford play Witton Albion away on Saturday.

Witton are fourth from bottom and so the Daniels will be hoping to put more space between them and any relegation battle.
