KEMPSEY Saints and Macleay Valley Rangers shared the points in a 1-all draw at Eden Street on Saturday.
The point each ensures Rangers remain in the hunt for a finals position with a catch-up match with Port Saints to be played on Tuesday.
The goal will be three points.
Rangers will no doubt be confident heading into the match at Findlay Park as the Port Macquarie side count down the days until the end of the season.
Rangers find themselves one point outside the top five.
Kempsey Saints could look back on the match as one that got away as there remains a three-point gap between themselves in fourth and Camden Haven Redbacks in third position.
Saints have a clash with the table-topping Wallis Lake to round out the season while Rangers will like their chances against Port FC in the final round of the season.
Finals hopes will go on the line.
FC will be buoyed by a confidence boosting 2-1 win over Port Saints last weekend.
