Draw brings Braintree halfway to Devonshire's 50-point target
Braintree Town dropped out of the Skrill Premier play-off zone after being pegged back in the second half of their trip to Nuneaton.
The Iron had taken the lead in the 30th minute as Matt Paine headed home from Alan Massey's cross.
Braintree had chances to get further ahead, but were unable to find an important second goal.
The hosts made a change at half-time as they came back strongly after the break and got a leveller in the 64th minute.
But there was an element of good fortune to the goal as Theo Streete's cross into the middle found its way over Braintree keeper Nathan McDonald before nestling in the back of the visitors' goal.
And that was the way it stayed at the end as both sides had to be content with a point apiece
It wasn't the three points that Braintree may have been hoping for as they responded to their defeat by Welling United a few days earlier, but it did bring the Iron to the halfway point in the 50-point target that manager Alan Devonshire believes will ensure their Skrill Premier survival this year.
