Diss Town are in FA Vase second qualifying round action on Saturday, visiting Lincoln Moorland Railway.

If there is not a replay then on Tuesday it's back to Ridgeons League Division One action, hosting Stowmarket.

Diss Town saw their winning sequence of three league matches come to an end despite leading 3-1 midway through the second half as they lost 4-3 to Yarmouth.

Stewart Roach scored all four goals for the Bloaters, who are now managed by ex-Diss boss Paul Tong.

Tangerines' manager Rob Taylor said: “Our defending was poor, we gave the ball away far too easily and were punished for it. We'll have to work on this before our next game.”

The team showed just one change to that which had won at Ipswich Wanderers the previous week. Gavin Pauling replaced the injured Leighton Miller.

Diss took just eight minutes to take the lead. Gavin Pauling sent the ball across from the right for Osiris Gomes to beat a defender and hit a shot from the edge of the penalty area past ex-Diss goalkeeper Michael Hilton.

Stewart Roach was denied an equaliser in the 13th minute when Luke Catchpole cleared off the line.

However, 10 minutes later Roach scored his first goal of the afternoon. Adie Hayes gave the ball away to Scott Woodcock. He moved forward and after going into the penalty area squared the ball for Roach to shoot in.

Hilton made a great save to keep the scores level after Hayes and Kevin Leggett linked up to create a shooting chance for Catchpole.

Diss regained the lead in the 35th minute when a weak header from Toby Gourbould at a free-kick from Ed Cussons allowed Andy Moody to shoot in from 10 yards out.

Moody took advantage of poor Yarmouth defending to allow Ben Deacon the chance to float the ball over Hilton to make it 3-1 to Diss in the 63rd minute.

Five minutes later Diss gave the ball away and Jose Vide and Jake Reed combined to give Woodcock the chance to run and cross for Roach to pull a goal back from close range.

Hayes was caught in possession in the 72nd minute and his hurried pass to Cussons saw Reed win the ball and pass for Roach to equalise with his hat-trick goal. The next goal would be crucial. Diss thought that they had it when Deacon put the ball in the net but an offside flag saw the effort ruled out.

With a minute left Diss again gave the ball away and Chris Squire hit a shot which Mark Camidge could only parry for Roach to win the game at 4-3 with a shot.
