Diss Reserves made it three clean sheets in a row despite Wanderers creating more of the on target scoring efforts. The visitors played the last 70 minutes with 10 men due to a sending off. Diss played the last 20 minutes with 10 men due to injury.
Mark Camidge made his first save in the 16th minute when he held an on target Ricky Dunne shot. Jack Foster made a great save a minute later to a Keiran Nicholls shot on the turn after good play between Luke Squire and Karl Ansley. Wanderers were reduced to 10 men in the 21st minute when Sam O'Connor was sent off for a kick off the ball on Steve Beasley. Diss had their best spell of the match with an target Squire shot held by Foster and Neil Hayward racing back to clear a shot from Nicholls off the line to a pass by Ansley.
Diss thought that they had taken the lead in the 33rd minute when a long ball from Dave Adams sent Nicholls away to beat Foster. A free-kick was awarded for offside against Squire. Five minutes later Camidge made a great save to a shot from Dunne. From the corner Ansley did well to head a goal bound effort on to the underside of the bar. Camidge came out to dive at the feet of Hayward in the last action of the first half.
Wanderers started the second half strongly with Camidge making a good save and Adams clearing off the line inside the first two minutes. Diss were reduced to 10 men when a recurrence of a knee injury meant that Squire was unable to continue for the last 20 minutes.
