Diss Town's Ben Fowkes celebrates giving the Tangerines a 2-0 lead against Stowmarket


Diss Town take a break from their Thurlow Nunn Division One promotion quest today to try and move to within one win of a night out at Carrow Road.

The Tangerines have a place in the semi-finals of the Norfolk Senior Cup in their sights and will be aiming to make full use of home advantage when they take on Fakenham from the top flight.

Diss currently lie fourth in the second tier while their opponents are mid-table in the league above them, so the tie at Brewers Green Lane should be a keenly-contested one.

Anglian Combination sides Harleston and Norwich CEYMS meet in today’s other quarter-final, with King’s Lynn hosting Wroxham on Tuesday evening and Norwich United having already accounted for Long Stratton.

In league action, Gorleston are at Clacton, Kirkley & Pakefield host Ipswich Wanderers and Thetford entertain second-placed Felixstowe and Walton.
