Diss Town’s run halted by late penalty
Cambridge University Press 1, Diss Town 0
Diss Town saw their six game run of wins without conceding a goal come to an end with a controversial late penalty decision at The Cass Stadium.
It was essential for CUP to win if they are to finish in the top three of Ridgeons League Division One this season. Diss need to win three of their last four games to guarantee promotion. They start with a home game against Thetford on Saturday. They also have a home game with title favourites Gorleston on Easter Monday and have both league fixtures against Godmanchester to be played.
There were few chances created on a hard surface after Jack Watson shot against the bar early on for the home team. Diss created a couple of reasonable second half chances but Danny Partridge and Luke Catchpole were off target.
The key moment of the game came in the 83rd minute when a shot from Lee Clift struck the arm of Stefan Gilding. His arm was by his side and made no movement towards the ball. The penalty was awarded after a signal from an assistant referee. Alfie Dixon scored from the penalty.
