Saffron Walden 0, Diss 1

DISS Town increased their lead over fifth placed Saffron Walden to six points from five extra games played thanks to a goal from Jason Hunt. It was a sixth away win of the season for The Tangerines in a game which is best described as rather scrappy, writes Tony Collins.

Bradley Green shot wide with an early chance for the home team and Ben Soanes did likewise from six yards out when he shot wide after fine creative play from Sam Bryant.

The only save of the first half was excellent. It came late on when Matt Webster dived low to his right to keep out a well-struck shot from Green from the edge of the penalty area.

Hunt won a challenge near halfway in the 53rd minute and took the ball away from Peter Flack. Hunt moved forward with real purpose and shot into the corner of the net from just inside the penalty area.

Webster caught a header from Jamie Solkhon at a corner as the only real danger to the Diss goal.

For the Tangerines Peter Hooks hit a late long-range shot just wide and then forced keeper Ronnie Yates into a save.

Hadleigh Res 7, Diss Res 0

DISS Reserves went out of the Chell Trophy to a good Hadleigh team. The game was effectively decided in a first half that the Tangerines started well.

However, they gave the ball away too often and trailed 6-0 at the interval. Their second-half showing was more impressive and a penalty goal was the only goal of the second half.

Diss seemed certain to score in the 59th minute but Cohodar had his shot blocked by the feet of Whitwell and the follow-up

shot from Kawa was kicked off the line.

Diss Reserves travel to Norwich United Reserves for a league game on Saturday (ko 3pm).
