Forest Green Rovers 1-1 Eastleigh
Fellow promotion-hopefuls Forest Green and Eastleigh looked in good shape at the New Lawn as they played out an entertaining draw.
It was 0-0 at the interval, as an in-form Rovers struggled to make the breakthrough against equally-spirited opponents.
The visitors threatened most significantly, Luke Coulson forcing Sam Russell to tip his volley over.
The sides exchanged quick goals early in the second half. Mikael Mandron gave Ronnie Moore's outfit a deserved lead with a shot high past Russell, but substitute Elliott Frear fed Rhys Murphy to level with his sixth goal of a productive season.
Green's Darren Carter came closest to earning victory when he shot an inch wide of the post.
