Diss Town finish their fixtures for 2008 by hosting Halstead in Ridgeons League Division One this Saturday and follow that up with a home game against Thetford the following weekend.

Diss completed their away league matches in 2009 with a 3-3 draw on a difficult surface, passed fit just before kick-off, at Clacton.

They have not been beaten in their last eight away matches.

It completes a remarkable 2009 where away from home they have 13 wins, three draws and one defeat - with a goals tally of 57-22 and 42 points collected.

Both sides created early chances but it was the Tangerines who scored first with the wind at their backs. An 18th-minute pass found its way to Adie Hayes on the edge of the penalty area and he scored with an accurate low shot into the corner of the net.

Danny Partridge used his pace to beat the offside trap and go away to shoot in to make it 2-0 in the 25th minute. He had a chance to make it three at a corner but his shot went high. From the next corner his header hit the outside of a post.

Mark White and Matty Waters linked up to allow Sean Hillier to shoot Clacton back into the match in the 34th minute.

Diss were awarded a penalty for the fourth match in a row when Partridge was brought down in the 38th minute. Hayes made it 3-1 from the penalty kick.

Waters scored directly from a free-kick in the 47th minute and Hillier scored his second goal of the afternoon in the 58th minute to make it 3-3.

Lee Barrett sent the ball through the middle and Hillier rounded Ashley Smith to shoot in. Both teams went for the winner as conditions deteriorated.

Waters hit the bar for Clacton and maybe in the end a draw was a fair outcome.
